A provocative, interactive workshop on one congregation's experience of transformation. By engaging difficult issues head-on, Temple Sholom in Cincinnati sold their building space, eliminated dues/membership, started a million-viewership video culture, declared itself an immigrant sanctuary-solidarity congregation, grown affiliation annually by 15% and doubled its religious school—all in the last three years. Join Rabbi Miriam Terlinchamp in a conversation on the role of space, communication, vision and growth.
Rabbi Terlinchamp is the Rabbi of Temple Sholom Cincinnati and the founder and Director of JustLove, a multifaith movement provoking love and action.
A native of Seattle, Washington, Rabbi Terlinchamp received her masters degree in Hebrew Letters in 2008, and was ordained as a rabbi in 2010 at HUC-JIR, Los Angeles. She received her bachelors degree in Philosophy of Religion and Studio Art from Scripps College in Claremont, CA and received additional studio art training at the London Slade School of Art.
Prior to joining Temple Sholom, Rabbi Terlinchamp served as chaplain at the Los Angeles County Men's Jail, the Los Angeles Home for the Aging, as a rabbinic fellow at Temple De Hirch Sinai in Seattle, WA, and a national Kol Tzedek fellow for AJWS (American Jewish World Service). She also serves as the current president of The Amos Project, the largest faith-based organizing body in Ohio with 55 Cincinnati-area congregations. She is active in Ohio Organizing Collaborative and serves on several boards and committees within the Cincinnati Jewish community.
