, with 12 men who gathered at the home of Isaac Neustadel for a Yom Kippur service. In 1850, after three years of services in homes and above businesses, the growing community named themselves Congregation Imanu-Al. In 1854, those who wished to worship in the Polish tradition, as opposed to the German, left to form Congregation Ahavath Emuno. Following that, members of Ahavath Emuno who found they preferred the German style, left to form a third congregation, Anshe Emeth, for a total of three synagogues in the small Jewish community of 200 families.

When Isaac Mayer Wise, the founder of Reform Judaism, visited Milwaukee in 1856, he persuaded Imanu-Al and Ahavath Emuno to consolidate into Congregation B’ne Jeshurun. Anshe Emeth joined them three years later. On September 16, 1859 the 115 Jewish families of Milwaukee were united in a ceremony complete with a procession, a ball, and speeches in both English and German. Nathan Pereles was elected president of the new congregation at a salary of $800 a year. However, 13 years later, they were split again, as 35 families split off to Congregation Emanu-El. The two synagogues stayed apart for fifty-eight years.

In 1922 Emanu-El, in need of larger facilities, began building at 2419 East Kenwood Boulevard. Meanwhile, B’ne Jeshurun’s building on 10th and Cedar was also beginning to feel cramped, resulting in arguments about the placement of the new location. In 1927, Milwaukee County informed them that the building would have to be torn down to make room for the new County Courthouse. After a lengthy discussion within B’ne Jeshurun’s own congregation and with Emanu-El, the two congregations combined in the building on Kenwood (now the Helene Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts) on September 15, 1927. Congregation Emanu-El B’ne Jeshurun, or CEEBJ, had been formed meat tenderising marinade.

In 2000 the congregation moved to the Joseph and Vera Zilber campus at 2020 W. Brown Deer Rd. Renovations by Phillip Katz began in 2008 and were completed in 2009. The new sanctuary has art by notable Judaic artist Tobi Kahn.
