Welcome to PlanitJewish Milwaukee, supporting a vibrant Jewish lifestyle in Metro Milwaukee!

The Milwaukee Jewish Federation has brought PlanitJewish to Metro Milwaukee with the goals of building community, building collaboration among local Jewish organizations and enhancing Jewish life in our community. PlanitJewish will improve communication and bring us closer together as a community, while supporting our institutions and organizations and improving their public outreach. PlanitJewish in Milwaukee is partially funded by a generous grant from Marcus Hotels.

PlanitJewish in Milwaukee is powered by the Milwaukee Jewish Federation. We gratefully acknowledge the contributions of our many partner organizations, who give strength and value to PlanitJewish through their active participation.



PlanitJewish Usage Policies

Milwaukee Jewish Federation


Which events will be posted on PlanitJewish?

Events submitted for listing on PlanitJewish must be sponsored or co-sponsored by a recognized Jewish agency, synagogue, or organization. Event listings must have a Jewish, educational, cultural, social, or community service component. The event should beneficial or relevant to the Metropolitan Milwaukee Jewish Community.

An event does not need to open to the whole community to be listed.

Ongoing “sequenced” classes may continue to be listed after the series has begun if it is appropriate to join after the series at that point. The following information should be provided: 1) whether registration is required, 2) whether registration is still open, and 3) whether someone may join the class after the series of classes has begun. Postings for these classes can be updated as information becomes available.

Who will post the information?

It is recommended that each participating agency, organization, and synagogue appoint two people to be responsible for submitting information for posting on PlanitJewish. The MJF will offer in-person training and will also provide written instructions for posting information.

Will the information be posted as submitted?

The Milwaukee Jewish Federation will review all information submitted prior to posting on PlanitJewish and may modify the information for formatting purposes.

How will conflicts in the calendar be handled?

In order for PlanitJewish to be successful, each organization must be respectful of the other organizations in our community.

Can dates be "held"?

Out of respect to the multitude of organizations in Metro Milwaukee, there are no provisions to permit PlanitJewish users to "hold" dates. Periodically, notices will be sent to remind each participant to review the dates listed on the calendar to ensure that the events are still occurring and that the information posted is accurate.

Submitting events to the bi-weekly MJF e-newsletter

On the event submission form, there is an optional check box allowing the submitter to have their event considered for the bi-weekly MJF e-newsletter. There are no specific criteria to be met for events to be considered, but due to event/e-newsletter timing and space availability, publication is not guaranteed.

Submission deadlines are 5 days prior to the publication of the e-newsletter. Publication dates for July through December 2012 are set for the following Thursdays: July 5, July 19, August 2, August 16, August 29, September 13, September 27, October 11, October 25, November 8, November 29, and December 13

Questions about the MJF e-newsletter should be sent directly to Melissa Taylor at
