A Personal Invitation

Boruchot HaBa'ot, Boruchim Ha Ba'im! Welcome to Temple Shalom's Membership Page

Thank you for accessing our website. This is a glimpse of the warm and wonderful liberal synagogue that is Temple Shalom. Since August 1978 it has been my honor and pleasure to serve as rabbi of this remarkable congregation. I have witnessed growth in both numbers and impact on our community and Jewry around the world. Almost 250 member families are affiliate with us; people of all ages, races, orientations and backgrounds.

We celebrate our Judaism through prayer, learning, social action and fun. We have active groups for youth, women and men in our temple. Our high school group, SHORTY (Super Heros of Reform Temple Youth) and WOTS (Women of Temple Shalom), our sisterhood both earned national recognition.

Temple Shalom members share a strong connection to Israel, travelling frequently to Louisville's Partnership Region, the Western Galillee, to engage with both the land and the people.

Temple Shalom is proudly committed to Reform Judaism. Our prayer book is Mishkan Tefila, the new Reform Siddur. Since 2005, a rabbinical student from our seminary, the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati, has been on staff as our Helen Wiser Rabbinic Intern; greatly enhancing our programming. Temple Shalom is Mishpocha; an extended family. To see who we really are, visit us! I look forward to seeing you at Temple Shalom!
