The Jewish Museum Milwaukee is dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of the Jewish people in southeastern Wisconsin and celebrating the continuum of Jewish heritage and culture. The history of American Jews is rooted in thousands of years of searching for freedom and equality. We are committed to sharing this story and the life lessons it brings with it, so that we may enhance the public’s awareness and appreciation of Jewish life and culture.
Jewish Museum Milwaukee explores the breadth of Jewish life and culture, both within the state of Wisconsin and beyond. Major sections include immigration, belief and community, earning a living, intolerance and the Holocaust, Israel, and tikkun olam or "repairing the world."
