As the most vibrant Jewish cultural organization in the Midwest, we build bridges between diverse communities with shared histories; we explore contemporary issues through the lens of Jewish history, culture and values; and inspire artists, thinkers, educators, students, and future leaders to engage with Jewish history, culture, and values as they pursue justice.


Remembrance: We memorialize the resilience, ingenuity, persistence, and profound hope of the Jewish people and others who have suffered inhumane treatment. We celebrate the achievements, culture, traditions, and religion of the Jewish people.

Justice: We pursue justice for all people through reflective conversation about history and current events.

Honor: We honor the inherent dignity of all people by amplifying lesser-heard voices and artistic expression.

Community: We build steadfast bridges across diverse communities and organizations by celebrating our shared humanity and histories.

Learning: We educate visitors of all ages, religions, races, and walks of life through engaging and meaningful programs and exhibits, while also listening to and learning from our visitors and their communities.

Jewish Museum Milwaukee explores the breadth of Jewish life and culture, both within the state of Wisconsin and beyond. Major sections in the permanent exhibit include immigration, belief and community, earning a living, intolerance and the Holocaust, Israel, and Tikkun Olam or "repairing the world." 3 special exhibits and over 40 programs per year allow in-depth exploration of important and contemporary issues.
