About the Museum

Since its founding in 1984, The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The 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 museum's mission is to make the diversity of the Jewish experience relevant for a twenty-first century audience. It accomplishes this through innovative exhibitions and programs that educate, challenge, and inspire. The Museum’s Daniel Libeskind-designed facility enables and inspires its mission. Dynamic and welcoming, it's a place to experience art, music, film, literature, debate, and people. Its core purpose is to be an engaging forum for diverse audiences where new perspectives on Jewish culture, history, art, and ideas thrive.
