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.

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

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.
