Turning a mission into a reality

At the J we believe it’s not just what we say – it’s what we do. And, while we provide the entire community with a destination for inclusive wellness, high quality education, and comprehensive social services – what we really do is serve a mission that brings everyone together.

That takes work.

We’re at our best when the community invests not only its financial resources, but also its time and talents. From the feeding the hungry at the Jewish Community Pantry to supporting our legacy leaders in senior adult programs to educating the youth in our tutoring services – there is no shortage of opportunities to open your heart and give some of yourself back to the community.

It’s tzedakah in action; not just charity, but justice.

Be part of the work that happens every day at the J – here in Whitefish Bay, in Milwaukee, or anywhere we serve the community. Not only will you make a difference in someone’s life, but you’ll make a difference in your own.
