Sanctuary Window

Your 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.


The congregational Passover Seder, held on the second night, will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 15, in the TAI social hall. Seating is limited, so make your reservations early using the attached form. The form also is available at the temple website,, and will be in the April bulletin.

This annual event is the work of Sisterhood, but it is a gathering of community, and help is needed with preparations and cleanup. This has become somewhat problematic in recent years, particularly when it comes to baking cakes and making matzo balls. But no culinary expertise is required for either of those things. The mixes are provided; all you have to do is follow the very simple instructions on the box.
If you have any questions, contact Mary Engel. She will be available only by email, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , through March 25. After that, contact her by email or at 252-3734.
