Digital Media Specialist

Milwaukee Jewish Federation

Since 1902, the Milwaukee Jewish Federation has demonstrated the power of collective giving by raising and investing financial resources to make the world a better place. Each year we distribute about $20 million to Jewish and other nonprofit organizations. Funds come primarily from our $6.5 million annual campaign and our $200 million Jewish Community Foundation. In addition to fundraising, we have several direct service programs like Jewish Museum Milwaukee, which served 30,000 remote visitors this past year, the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center, which educates about 40,000 students and adults each year, and the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, serving the Jewish community across the state. We are committed to the principles of Klal Yisrael (the collective unity of the Jewish people), Tzedakah (the obligation to care for one another) and Tikkun Olam (improving the society in which we live).
