Temple Adath Israel, is a synagogue in Owensboro, Kentucky. The Moorish Revival facade of the modest building features a gothic-arched door flanked by a pair of gothic-arched windows punctuated by four pilasters. These are surmounted with molded capitals and fanciful embellishments and the whole is topped by a whimsical row of four, small, onion domed turrets. The synagogue was built in 1877.
