Historical Records

The Jewish Museum Milwaukee developed over twenty years ago out of the Roots Committee of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation, which began documenting the history of the Jews of Milwaukee. The Archives of the Museum include organizational, business, synagogue and personal artifacts, pictures and paper. The online databases were built from these resources.

The Archives continue to collect and organize materials related the history of Milwaukee’s Jewish community. Click here for information about donating materials.
