With constantly rotating exhibitions that celebrate Jewish culture, heritage, history, and art, the 63,000 square-foot museum gives wedding guests access to an amazing array of galleries.  Choose from a flexible variety of event spaces: 

Its Grand Lobby is a beautiful 5,000 square foot space which can hold up to 300 wedding guests for a seated catered dinner and 600 for a standing reception.

The Auditorium and Meeting Room is 3,300 square feet and can be used for a 250 person theater or a catered wedding reception, seated dinner for 300 or a cocktail party for 350.

The Special Events Gallery is 2,200 square feet and has a dramatic jewel shaped 60’ ceiling with 36 skylights. This is a unique setting for either a seated dinner for 150 or a reception for 200 guests.

Conveniently located near Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco’s cultural Yerba Buena district. 

The Contemporary Jewish Museum requires kosher-style catering which prohibits the serving of any pork products and shellfish.

Global Gourmet Catering provides delicious kosher style menus to meet this requirement and is proud to be a preferred San Francisco wedding caterer for this amazing venue!

What We Love About This Venue
This historic building is not only conveniently located one block from Moscone Center but presents itself with such grace and beauty. With innovative, and constantly changing exhibits of Jewish culture, the museum’s mesmerizing galleries are a cultural bonus for your wedding guests.
