About Rockdale Temple

Rockdale Temple (K.K. Bene Israel) was founded in 1824 (the oldest Jewish congregation West of the Alleghenies).  We are a Reform Temple comprised of approximately 400 families.  The congregation is a diverse community ranging from 7th generation members to those new to the city of Cincinnati. Our membership is comprised of individuals, couples and families of many configurations. The Temple is led by a Board of Directors along with an Executive Director and two Rabbis. Our mission is to create and enhance our members’ Jewish identities through community engagement, worship, educational opportunities and meaningful lifecycle events. The congregation’s members, Women of Rockdale (Sisterhood), Brotherhood, and other auxiliaries are involved in a variety of civic engagement projects with a focus on mitzvot and tzedakah. We strive to create relevant experiences within the Jewish tradition.
