Global Conference for Jewish Museums

April 20, 21, 27 & 28, 2021 This online program begins at 11am EDT each day.


CAJM is excited to be presenting its first online, global conference for Jewish museum professionals – developed in partnership with the Association of European Jewish Museums. Mark your calendars to join us online in late April for this unprecedented gathering.

We encourage all interested to register now; registration rates for the whole conference start at $50 for members. Or apply for a Fellowship or Scholarship so that cost is not a barrier.

See the program lineup in the conference brochure, and stay tuned to this page for exciting updates and speakers over the coming weeks!

This year, we are collectively examining the topic of Upheaval – knowing our profession has been greatly impacted by contemporary issues and forces around the world. At the same time, our museums are creating their own upheavals – through innovation, reconfiguration, and new priorities that will reshape our work for years to come.
