Temple Israel is a Reform Jewish synagogue serving Western Kentucky, Southern Illinois, Northwestern Tennessee, and Southeastern Missouri. We are an inclusive congregation with members who are Jewish by birth or by choice and committed to preserving our heritage and educating the community about our history dating back to the 1860s. Together we worship, celebrate, and socialize as well as collaborate with other religious organizations to promote connectedness and a sense of community through acts of goodwill and charity.
Almost every house of worship depends on the ladies to set the religious and cultural atmosphere of the physical plant. So it was in Paducah within the Jewish community.
