We welcome you to Congregation Achduth Vesholom, where we’ve been building Jewish community since 1848. As Indiana’s oldest Jewish congregation, we have a long tradition of bringing together those who want to share the joy of Judaism. 

Under the spiritual leadership of Rabbi Javier E. Cattapan, we offer many opportunities for worship, learning, social actionculture, and friendship. A charter member of the Union for Reform Judaism, our congregation is warmly open to the traditional riches of the Jewish past, while continuously looking for ways to build a creative and meaningful future.

Our name means "unity and peace." We are truly a family at the Temple. We 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.

Please visit our congregation and our beautiful Rifkin Campus at 5200. Find out how to become a member of our Temple family.
