About the Helfaer Community Service Building
Visitors enter the Edward Durell Stone-designed Helfaer Building, a simple, balanced, cream-colored brick building constructed in 1973. The Museum was developed in 2008 after a renovation by Kahler-Slater. The building also houses the Milwaukee Jewish Federation, Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle and Holocaust Education Resource Center. To the north of the building, visitors will see the Memorial to the Holocaust designed by Milwaukee-born artist, Claire Lieberman. The corten steel sheets give a book-like effect, symbolic of the Jewish identity as “people of the book.”
