- Biographical or historical data
- The Congregation Beth El in Harrisonburg, Virginia, traces its origin to 1859 when four Jewish families from Austria-Hungary settled in the Rockingham County area. When the Civil War began two years later, four family members, Jonas Heller, Emanuel Loewner, Albert and Adolph Wise, enlisted in the Confederate Army and fought under Stonewall Jackson. After the war the Jewish community blossomed and, in need of a place to hold religious services, the Jewish families began to rent rooms in buildings on Main Street in Harrisonburg. It was in one of these rooms that the congregation was established in 1870. The Jewish community continued to grow to the extent that in 1890 the congregation purchased land intended for the erection of a permanent temple building. The first services were held in this building in 1891. In 1907 Rabbi Jacob Schvanenfeld became the first Rabbi of the congregation. The present temple building was erected in 1964.
