Moses Montefiore Congregation
The Moses Montefiore Congregation is a synagogue in Bloomington, Illinois.
Although Jews had arrived in Bloomington by the 1850s, the synagogue was organized in 1884 and named for Sir Moses Montefiore. In 1889 the congregation dedicated a Moorish Revival synagogue building at the southeast corner of Monroe and Prairie Streets. It is one of the relatively few surviving 19th century synagogue buildings in the United States.
