During the following decades, congregants migrated and Adath Israel followed. The first of these relocations occurred in 1917, under the tutelage of Adath Israel’s new rabbi, Louis Feinberg. During his tenure, Feinberg proved to be a tireless force, breathing new life into the sixty-year-old congregation, as well as serving on the boards and committees of many social, educational, and religious organizations within the Jewish community.
It was during the 1940s that Rabbi Fishel Goldfeder came to Adath Israel, first as an associate rabbi to Rabbi Feinberg in 1945, and then as senior rabbi in 1949. Under his guidance and leadership, the congregation continued to thrive and expand their services. More than 160 years following its founding, Adath Israel can boast of being the oldest traditional synagogue in Cincinnati as well as being among the eldest conservative congregations in the country.
