The Council of American Jewish Museums (CAJM) was founded in 1977 under the auspices of the National Foundation for Jewish Culture and is committed to strengthening the Jewish museum field in North America. Through training of museum staff and volunteers, information exchange, and advocacy on behalf of Jewish museums, CAJM assists its institutional, individual, and affiliate members as they educate and inspire diverse audiences on all aspects of Jewish culture and history. The organization remains affiliated with the Foundation for Jewish Culture, its fiscal agent.
CAJM represents 80 member institutions in over 30 states and provinces in North America, including Jewish art and history museums, historic sites, historical and archival societies, Holocaust centers, synagogue museums, children’s museums, and Jewish community center and university galleries.
