About the CJM
Conveniently located in downtown San Francisco, The Contemporary Jewish Museum's dynamic facility designed by renowned architect Daniel Libeskind offers beautiful spaces for all types of events - perfect for cocktail parties, seated dinners, wedding receptions, bar/bat mitzvah celebrations, lectures, film screenings, and meetings. The CJM's close proximity to Moscone Center makes it a great location for convention-related events. We can accommodate rentals as small as 25 persons and up to 1,000 in a variety of room environments with easy onsite catering by an amazing Jewish deli (Wise Sons) or dozens of other preferred caterers. Special access to galleries can be arranged by agreement.
