Inscription.  The Temple was created in 1976 by uniting Reform congregations Adath Israel and Brith Sholom. Adath Israel was chartered by Kentucky in 1842; it was the oldest Jewish congregation in Ky., 7th Reform in U.S., a founder of Union of American Hebrew Congregations. Ritual of Isaac M. Wise, founder of Reform Judaism, adopted in 1855.

Brith Sholom formed 1880 by German Jews wishing a traditional service but tending toward reform. They joined UAHC, 1920. Jewish families moving farther east led to the relocation of site and 1976 consolidation. This temple was dedicated 1980. Cemetery is on Preston Highway.
