Congregation Emanu-El of Waukesha

Located in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Congregation Emanu-El of Waukesha is the second oldest reform Jewish synagogue in the Milwaukee area. Our members come from a wide geographic area that includes Milwaukee, Waukesha, Jefferson and Walworth counties. By mid 2018 our membership totaled approximately 80 households.

Our sacred mission is to inspire and affirm our diverse Jewish community by blending progressive thought with tradition, by being accepting and accessible, and by serving greater Waukesha through education, worship and social action.
