Welcome to Temple Adath Israel

Sanctuary WindowYour Jewish home in Lexington, Kentucky

Temple Adath Israel began as a family venture, 110 years ago. New immigrants and settled Jews brought their families together to form this holy community. Our family has grown and diversified, but we are still family. We celebrate with each other and cry with each other. Our leadership is culled from people who have been here for generations and from people relatively new to the community. Our affiliate groups ensure that every member of our family has a relevant place to flourish in our community.
