Name Ilana Kline
How long have you been a member of The Temple? Less than 1 year
Why did you decide to join The Temple? I have always been an active member of the Jewish community wherever I’ve lived, and when I moved to Louisville in August I wanted to find a synagogue that could serve as a new home for me. My sister, (Corey Buckman) is already a member of The Temple so it made sense to start my membership at a synagogue where I already had connections and someone to help me get acclimated.
