About Shabbat at Jewseum

Shabbat at Jewseum is a quarterly program that invites visitors to The CJM on Shabbat (Saturday) afternoons to immerse themselves in Jewish ideas of rest and rejuvenation, and to engage with the ritual of Shabbat through an afternoon of activations at The Museum. Shabbat at Jewseum includes live music, a learning corner, interactive gallery walks, and hands-on craft making activities, all stemming from the diverse traditions and hallmarks of Shabbat across the Jewish experience. The programs will offer creative activities that foster wellbeing and aim to create a space for communal joy through the lens of Jewish practices of ritual and belonging.
