?? Coffee and Crafts Anyone??

While we're talking about repairing the world, how about warming the world? We're thinking about re-starting "Crafts and Coffee" nights, but with an additional focus. If you have a project you want to bring along to work on while you share conversation and hot beverages with other crafters, that's super -- and if you want to start something new, here's our suggestion: Bring a skein of yarn and your knitting/crocheting tools and make a simple hat or scarf for a homeless person. We have a JFCS contact who works directly with Louisville's homeless population, and word from her is that it's cold outdoors and getting colder. She will be delighted to pass along any items -- handmade or not -- to people who need them.

If your skills don't run to knitting or crocheting, but you think you can manage scissors okay, I have a stash of acrylic fleece and I'd love to show you how to make no-sew scarves. 😄 And if you don't want to work on a project, you're still welcome to join us -- we'd love the company!

Please call or email Cynthia Canada if this interests you; I want to know what day or evening of the month would work best for the most people. We could meet on a weeknight, or possibly on a Sunday, monthly or maybe even twice a month. I'm open to whatever we can work out for the most people.

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.
