This temple is just beautiful, built in the late 1800s and inspired by the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.

A group of us sat in the pews of this magnificent synagogue and listened to our tour guide. She was excellent, relating to us the history of the Jewish people, beginning with Abraham down to the first rabbi of this temple. The rites and customs of the Jews were so interesting.

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
