The Milwaukee Jewish Federation, its partner agencies and local synagogues are all working to provide resources and virtual services to meet the needs of the Milwaukee Jewish community as Milwaukee grapples with coronavirus and COVID-19.
“Although our building doors are closed, our team is working remotely at full capacity to ensure our Jewish Community and partner agencies have the resources that they need to fulfill our shared mission and to provide essential services,” said Miryam Rosenzweig, President and CEO of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation.
One of the resources that the Milwaukee Jewish Federation has put together is a webpage that addresses the immediate needs of the community: financial assistance, mental health and connection.
The Jewish Community COVID-19 Resource webpage gives readers a variety of resources to get help including mental health services at Jewish Family Services and domestic violence assistance. Readers can also see a list of how they can help others – everything from donating money to volunteering to make phone calls to seniors and others who are feeling lonely as a result of social distancing.
The webpage features a long list of online services and classes and virtual program opportunities from many community organizations. The Milwaukee Jewish Federation updates the webpages as new information and opportunities develop.
