Superb Architecture

the external architecture of the temple is awesome, but nothing compared to the warmth and beauty of the interior. If you can't in, do.

Restored Historic Jewish Temple in downtown Cincinnati. Located on a corner across from Cincinnati City Hall, and a Catholic Cathedral. Tours are available upon advanced reservations, parking available on surface lots and garages nearby. Some street metered parking. Temple is principally used for religious services, graduations, Hebrew Union College rabbinic ordinations.

Absolutely gorgeous, recently restored interior. However, this is an active religious temple and generally only open for some Friday night, Saturday morning and special holiday/event services. It is not a tourist attraction so don't expect to be able to stop by and find it open. I'm sure there are limited opportunities for tours but that is something that would require... More

Although I missed seeing the inside, this is one of the many surprising for me buildings in downtown Cincinnati with a very cool architectural design.

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.

The birthplace of Reform Judaism. On the list of National Historic Landmarks. Definitely worth a visit. Need to coordinate ahead.

I love the building and the inside was very interesting. Very European, like walking through the Marais in Paris.

Nestled in modern downtown Cincinnati is this European gem of functional architecture place of worship. In the moorish style. Nicely renovated in the original style. excellent acoustics.The parking in the area is a bit difficult, however, but if you are touring the region and it is open, it is worth the stop. Religious services are not always held here but... More
