L’Chaim: Celebrating Our Building at 15 

Available by reservation February 23, 2023–May 28, 2024

Celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of The Museum’s landmark building, tours of L’Chaim: Celebrating Our Building at 15 examine the symbolism imbued in the unique architecture of The CJM. Join us virtually or in-person to explore the multitude of symbols layered in the space we inhabit, unlocking the meaning behind its dynamic energy and inviting you to experience the space anew.

Jewish Traditions and Rituals in Contemporary Art

Available by reservation March 23–July 23, 2023

This in-person tour focuses on the exhibitions Cara Levine: To Survive I Need You to Survive and We Become [Vessels]. Led by a Museum educator, explore artworks that consider how we find new connections amidst the social forces driving us apart, and engage in conversation around themes of grief, lifecycle, and interconnectedness with our community and environment. 

Tours for private groups are $100 for a group of up to twenty-five people. Reduced rates are available to community service agencies providing services to disadvantaged, vulnerable, and low-income populations. 

Capacity is limited, and advance reservations are required for all tours. Follow the link below to book your tour now. For questions, email
