Temple exterior 2014 smallThank you for taking the time to look at our web site.  Our dynamic, thriving Reform Jewish congregation supports individuals and families from diverse backgrounds on their spiritual journey.  The congregation was formed in 1976, and moved into its current  building in August 1989. We have nearly 200 families, including singles, couples, families with children, seniors, etc. The congregation has a strong family atmosphere.  As of July 1, 2016 Rabbi Beth Jacowitz Chottiner has been our spiritual leader.  Rabbi Stanley R. Miles was the congregation's first full time rabbi and was granted the title of Rabbi Emeritus, continuing to be active in the life of the congregation.  There are a number of pages under the main menu at the top that will explain in more detail the people and programs of Temple Shalom in Louisville, KY. 

The best way to get to know us is to join us for Kabbalat Shabbat or Shabbat Morning services.  At Temple Shalom, we welcome newcomers, who can quickly find the chance to participate and belong in a nurturing community with the warmth of Jewish tradition.  Times are listed under Worship.
