There are two wonderful things going on for Brooklyn kids this weekend. The first for older kids, those interested in music, Latin America and the role of music as a way out for high risk kids, is a concert by low income youth from Latin America who learned to be musicians...and are so talented that they've come all the way to NYC to play concerts. The other, for younger children, is at the Brooklyn Children's Museum, which with its unbeatable dedication to framing every holiday in the widest possible lens of diversity, is offering a global view for tots of the Jewish festival of standing-up-for-your-rights, Hanukkah.
