Centuries of shared beliefs, joys, and hardships have created a Jewish community within, linking Jews in Milwaukee with Jews around the world. The Jewish community is united through religious identity and institutions such as synagogues and temples, but many people connect Jewishly through social and benevolent groups. The Jewish Museum Milwaukee looks at the diversity of Jewish expression and belief and the many ways in which Jews organize themselves.
The idea of community is central to Jewish belief. Community is imperative in times of joy and sadness. The Jewish community established organizations to support peoples’ needs. The archives of the Jewish Museum Milwaukee contain important documents about organizational history in Milwaukee.
You can find current organizations that support the needs of the Jewish community here.
