Since its founding in 1984, the Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM) has distinguished itself as a welcoming place where visitors can connect with one another through dialogue and shared experiences with the arts. Ever changing, the CJM is a non-collecting institution that partners with national and international cultural institutions to present exhibitions that are both timely and relevant and represent the highest level of artistic achievement and scholarship. The core purpose of The CJM is to be an engaging forum for diverse audiences where new perspectives on Jewish culture, history, art, and ideas thrive.

Looking to get more involved? The CJM encourages its Contemporaries membership group to explore contemporary perspectives on Jewish culture, history, art, and ideas by offering its members a dynamic array of social, educational, and philanthropic events throughout the year. Private exhibition tours, special events featuring curators, artists, and leading scholars with free or reduced admission, exclusive tours of private art collections and artists’ studios, invitations to special events hosted by partner organizations and to the Exodus Party (formerly the Out of Order Seder), the Contemporaries' signature event.
