Home of Reform Judaism in the heart of downtown Cincy. Absolutely a spectacular building in both the European and Moorish style. On a tiny site and parking not always the best. Check the hours ahead of time.

I am a wedding designer, and every time I have a wedding ceremony I am amazed at the beautiful restored temple, one of the first west of the Appalachian Mountains I believe!
