Jewish Life

Milwaukee’s Jewish community is vibrant and diverse, and the JCC is right at the center of the action. Creating an inclusive Jewish gathering space means celebrating the values and traditions that unite us, rather than the differences that divide us. No matter if you grew up Jewish or are new to the community, you always have a home here.

Wondering where your interfaith family fits in? At the JCC, part of creating an inclusive environment means welcoming all faiths. Family programs, youth education, and holiday celebrations fill our calendar and make Jewish tradition, practice, and exploration accessible to all families.

This is where our community gathers – and where you belong.
