The CJM is temporarily closed

The CJM is temporarily closed to help curb the spread of COVID-19.

Update on coronavirus response

Our highest priority at The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) is the health and safety of our staff and visitors. In accordance with state and city guidelines based on California’s four-tier color-coded classification system, The CJM will close temporarily to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, effective Sunday, November 29. Following an initial closure in March, The Museum reopened on October 17, during which time we were able to safely welcome visitors back to The CJM; however, the recent surge in cases in San Francisco has made it clear that our commitment to reducing transmission of COVID-19 requires that we close our doors again.

The CJM is closely monitoring the changing status of the pandemic, and we will continue to follow the recommendations of state and city public health authorities. We urge everyone to take precautions as outlined by the City of San Francisco and the State of California, including wearing a face covering, practicing physical distancing, and frequent hand washing.

At this time, Wise Sons will remain open for contactless pick-up and delivery only. If you have questions about the restaurant’s open hours, please visit their website.

If you have purchased or reserved tickets, please contact us at info@thecjm.org.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support. We will continue to update this page as the situation develops. We look forward to reopening as soon as we can do so safely. L’shalom.

Land Acknowledgement

The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) acknowledges that it is on the traditional and unceded lands of the Ramaytush Ohlone People of Yelamu, and the Muwekma Ohlone, and pays respect to elders, both past and present, of the Ohlone people. We recognize that the cultural heritage of California begins at least 15,000 years ago, and that the entire Bay Area rests on the land of Indigenous cultures, who were the original stewards of this territory. 

It is important that we recognize not only this legacy, but that the Ramaytush Ohlone and Muwekma Ohlone people are alive and active members of our San Francisco and Bay Area communities. Active community engagement is one of The CJM’s core values, and we will continue to collaborate with representatives from the Indigenous community to further strengthen cultural sensitivity and awareness.

The CJM is committed to expanding access to exhibitions, programs, and resources by removing financial, social, and cultural barriers.

Accessibility

The Contemporary Jewish Museum strives to ensure that its facilities, exhibitions, and programs are accessible, and that all of our visitors feel a sense of welcome, respect, and inclusion. We believe that positive arts and cultural experiences are essential to building healthy communities. For information, registration, or to request an accommodation, contact Access and Community Engagement Programs at The Contemporary Jewish Museum: 415.655.7856 or access@thecjm.org.
