About the Program

The Family Gala at The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) is the Bay Area’s most unique annual family event—a night of friendship, art, and merriment for children and their families in support of The Museum’s Education and Family programming, including free exhibition tours for K-12 school groups, free Museum admission for youth 18 and under, Preschool Super Fun Sundays, and so much more. Planned in tandem with a family-friendly exhibition at The CJM, the Family Gala brings to life the imagination and creativity featured in its galleries, making the event a new experience each year. This year will be inspired by The CJM’s fall exhibition J. Otto Seibold and Mr. Lunch, so get ready to shake your tails and groove with us!
