The Jewish Museum Presents A Hanukkah Project: Daniel Libeskind’s Line of Fire from November 19, 2010 through January 30, 2011.

Libeskind has created a bold and dramatic installation featuring 40 Hanukkah lamps from the Museum’s renowned collection. Focused on the central ritual of Hanukkah – the kindling of flames in commemoration of an ancient victory for religious freedom – Libeskind’s design interprets Hanukkah through an evocative metaphor for the spiritual power of fire.
