The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) acknowledges that it is on the traditional and unceded lands of the Ramaytush Ohlone People of Yelamu, and the Muwekma Ohlone, and pays respect to elders, both past and present, of the Ohlone people. We recognize that the cultural heritage of California begins at least 15,000 years ago, and that the entire Bay Area rests on the land of Indigenous cultures, who were the original stewards of this territory.
It is important that we recognize not only this legacy, but that the Ramaytush Ohlone and Muwekma Ohlone people are alive and active members of our San Francisco and Bay Area communities. Active community engagement is one of The CJM’s core values, and we will continue to collaborate with representatives from the Indigenous community to further strengthen cultural sensitivity and awareness.
The CJM is committed to expanding access to exhibitions, programs, and resources by removing financial, social, and cultural barriers.
The Contemporary Jewish Museum strives to ensure that its facilities, exhibitions, and programs are accessible, and that all of our visitors feel a sense of welcome, respect, and inclusion. We believe that positive arts and cultural experiences are essential to building healthy communities.
