We welcome you to our website and hope that you will visit our congregation. We are truly a family at the Temple. Young, old, single, married -- all have found a home with us. It is our hope that you will share the joy of Jewish living and learning with us, too. Our name means "unity and peace," two characteristics we feel you'll find at Achduth Vesholom.
Our roots date back to 1848, distinguishing us as the oldest Jewish congregation in Indiana and a charter member of the Reform Movement. Under the spiritual leadership of Rabbi Javier E. Cattapan, we welcome all who seek knowledge about Judaism or a relationship with the Jewish faith and people.
As a member of the Union for Reform Judaism, we are linked to a worldwide community of progressive Jews who value the freedom of the individual to choose a personal way to God. As a congregation, we are warmly open to the traditional riches of the Jewish past, while continuously looking for ways to build a creative and meaningful Jewish future. Find out more about Reform Judaism.
The congregation views itself as a community of members who support one another in times of difficulty, share life's blessings at times of joy and work together to bring about tikkun olam, the betterment of the world around us. We offer a wide range of worship services, educational opportunities, cultural programs, social events and community activities. See our calendar for all the latest events.
Take a virtual tour of the Temple, see a little bit about our history, join us for services or other events, make a donation to one of our funds, browse our children's book collection, or contact us. We also invite you to learn more about our vision for the future: Campus at 5200.
