    He was appointed rabbi to congregation Kehilath Jeshurun in 1885. There is information online if you search for “Kehilath Jeshurun Peikes,” including a google books excerpt of how he was ousted from the congregation. His death record says that he died in Brooklyn at age 62, born in Russia, in the US for 45 years, father Benjamin, mother Sarah Cohen. An online family tree lists his first wife as Rachel Cohen and second wife as Dora.

    I find the name “Mier Yehoshua Peikes” later in the 1960’s I assume this is a grandson who was on the borad of editors for Kol Yaakov a periodical printed by the Yeshivah RJJ.

    Peikes, M. J. Elected Rabbi of Congregation B’nai Benjamin, New York, in 1904.

    From Jewish yearbook on internet. Can’t find any reference to this synagogue. Maybe a sort-lived break-away synagogue from KJ.
