Rabbi will host Story Time via Zoom for everyone.
Following this unusual year of cancellations and missed traditions, join SCHA throughout the holiday season to celebrate some of the beloved traditions of Spartanburgers throughout the years!
SCHA’s own tradition of displaying the James Buchanan dioramas of “A Visit From St. Nicholas” will continue with the fully restored, lighted scenes on full display!
Thanks to partnership with the Spartanburg Jaycees and Carolina Cash, see floats from past Spartanburg Christmas Parades and learn more about the charitable events the parade supports in our town!
Memories of “Dickens of a Christmas” are on display set within the Victorian display within the Decorative Arts hall of the Regional History Museum!
In partnership with Temple B’nai Israel, a collection of Hanukkah traditions including menorahs, dreidels, and latke platters is on loan from members of Spartanburg’s synagogue.
And finally, view a beautiful collection of nativity scenes on loan from a private collector.

(200 E. St. John St., Spartanburg).
Hours: Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm Saturday, 11am-4pm
