Adult & Family Education

CEEW runs a vibrant and extremely active Adult and Family Education Program for a congregation our size. We are able to draw upon all of our members, staff and departments to put on our programs. No silos here! We are fortunate to be in the Metro Milwaukee area where we can utilize resources from the Milwaukee Jewish Federation; University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee; Carroll University and the greater community to present our sessions.
