We are a congregation that supports a wide range of programs and activities for members of all ages. We want to build a community based on inclusiveness, where everyone is welcome, whether a Jew by birth or by choice.
By 1859, there were eleven Jewish-owned businesses in Paducah, several of which were partnerships of two or more Jews. Many ran clothing stores; of the eight clothing businesses in Paducah in 1859, six were Jewish-owned. One of these included a store owned by Solomon Greenbaum and Cesar Kaskel. Kaskel, a native of Prussia, had moved to Paducah in 1858. In 1859, twenty Paducah Jews founded the Chevra Yeshurun burial society and bought land for a cemetery.
