Erev Opening Bash

It’s time to celebrate! In keeping with the tradition of Jewish holidays beginning at sundown, the Capital Jewish Museum kicks off our grand opening with an Erev Opening Bash the evening before the Museum’s official opening.

You’re invited to a memorable evening of celebration and discovery! Dance along with music by DJ Shablast. Get bedazzled by artists from SparkleLynn Designs. Enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres reimagined from recipes from the Capital Jewish Museum’s historic cookbooks. Meet artifacts from the vault and let your creative side shine with crafts, inspired by the Museum collection. Grab your friends and get your tickets to an event that only happens once!

Advance ticket purchase required. Must be 21 or older to attend and present a valid ID at the door.

Cocktail attire suggested. Doors open at 6:00 PM.
