The CJM is a historical landmark turned contemporary museum located in the heart of downtown San Francisco. Originally the Jessie Street Power Substation built in the early 1800’s, it has been transformed into a modern architectural piece of art in itself full of dynamic natural light, striking galleries and functional event spaces.

Ideal for everything from private receptions, parties, and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs to corporate meetings, lectures, and even film screenings, the Contemporary Jewish Museum offers beautiful spaces for a wide variety of functions.

Its Grand Lobby is a beautiful 5,200 square foot space which can hold up to 600 for a seated catered dinner and 800 for a standing reception.

The Blue Cube offers a 2,000 square-foot space with angled walls and vaulted ceilings, and can be used for small meetings, cocktail receptions, or as an alternative entrance. And it may be used in conjunction with the Grand Lobby ti increase the square footage of your event.

The 3,500 square-foot Richard and Rhoda Goldman Hall is the CJM's most versatile space; well suited for corporate meetings, award ceremonies, conferences, seated dinners or cocktail receptions.

The Stephen and Maribelle Leavitt Yud Gallery is 2,500 square feet and has a dramatic jewel shaped 65 foot high ceiling with 36 skylights that cast distinct patterns of light. This is a unique setting for cocktail receptions and seated dinners.

The museum is conveniently located one block from Moscone Center, making it an ideal spot for post-conference events.

The CJM does not require strict adherence to Kosher Jewish dietary laws, however, pork and shellfish are not allowed inside the museum.

Global Gourmet Catering provides delicious menus to meet this requirement and is proud to be a preferred SF catering company for this amazing venue!
