At New York City’s Jewish Museum the author Maurice Sendak has rummaged through their collection and personally chosen 33 menorahs from the 18th to the 20th centuries for the exhibit, “An Artist Remembers: Hanukkah Lamps Selected by Maurice Sendak”. Also included in the display are original drawings from Sendak’s books, like Zlateh the Goat (1966) and In Grandpa’s House (1985) as well as audio of his conversations with the curators. I particularly liked this pencil drawing…he’s definitely one of my favorite people. Happy Hanukkah!
