Welcome!

Temple exterior 2014 smallTemple Shalom is one of two Reform synagogues in Louisville, KY. The congregation was formed in 1976, and moved into its current  building in August 1989. We have nearly 200 members, including singles, couples, families with children, seniors, etc. The congregation has a strong family atmosphere. Rabbi Stanley R. Miles has been the congregation's rabbi almost since its founding,coming to Louisville in 1978.


 The religious school includes over 150 students. We partner with Keneseth Israel and Adath Jeshurun synagogues for Louisville Beit Sefer Yachad (LBSY, Louisville United Jewish Religious School), an innovative new program with Hebrew and Jewish Studies encompassing grades Kindergarten-8.  Classes are divided by age, meeting in all three synagogue venues on Sunday and at the Jewish Community Center on Wednesday. Our 9th and 10th graders attend the High School of Jewish Studies. Friday night and Saturday morning services are enhanced with a monthly Family Shabbat, conducted on a rotational basis by each of the religious school classes.

Temple Shalom has an active sisterhood, called the Women of Temple Shalom (WOTS) and received its charter from the Women of Reform Judaism in 1995. WOTS sponsors the Helen Wiser Judaica Shop, Hanukkah Helpers and many other functions at Temple Shalom.
