This campaign is over.
You can still contribute to this campaign.

The Shul is a place close to all our hearts, a one-of-a-kind community that creates a bond among its members and visitors that feels like family. Jewish learning for all ages, holiday programs, celebrations shared as a Shul family, a helping hand in times of need, lifecycle events...whatever it is, we are dedicated to filling our community's needs - you can help us make it happen!

JYF (Camp Gan Israel, Cteen, and Mitzva Corps) is famous for making our Jewish heritage feel like a loving embrace for our Jewish Youth. Help us ensure that Jewish kids and teens in the Milwaukee area feel that Judaism is exciting, relevant and warm.

How does a Match Campaign work?

Running operations like The Shul and JYF requires a major investment of time, energy, and capital. While our Rabbis and Rebbetzins work tirelessly to ensure that no Jew is left behind, the day-to-day operating expenses can be daunting. Rather than charging mandatory membership fees or exorbitant event prices, which could alienate some people, we rely on the generosity of the community that we serve. We have three groups of generous benefactors who have pledged to donate $150,000 provided that it is matched by a $50,000 donation from you, our community. That means, for every dollar you give, The Shul/JYF will get $4.00! For 30 hours only, your dollars will have quadruple the impact! This is an incredible opportunity to show your support and make a real difference in our community!

How can I help?

1) Donate! You can be a partner in everything we do to benefit our community by contributing to this campaign in the 30 hour window!
2) Spread the word! Share on social media, remind your friends at work or at carpool pickup, send an email to your mom, and announce it over the fence to your neighbor.
3) Volunteer for the campaign! Join us at the Shul, or work from your home, and help us reach out to everyone on our list by phone to invite them to join us in this opportunity!

Maimonides says that every good deed, no matter how small, tips the scale of humanity toward goodness. Today you have the opportunity to see the impact of that deed multiplied many times over.
