Inspired by The CJM’s exhibition, Ned Kahn: Negev Wheel.

On Saturday, December 3, 2016, we hosted An Evening of Elements, The Contemporary Jewish Museum’s Eighth Annual Family Gala. Inspired by The CJM’s exhibition, Ned Kahn: Negev Wheel, attendees traveled the desert in the Koret Taube Grand Lobby, delved into the deep seas in the Stephen and Maribelle Leavitt Yud Gallery, and explored the expanse of space in the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Hall.

Proceeds from the Family Gala support The CJM’s education, family, and access programs, which bring Jewish art and ideas to more than 19,000 visitors each year.
