Rachel Gross-Prinz (Rabbinic Intern) believes that Jewish text and ritual power us to reflect on how we are living and how we want to live – for ourselves and those who come next. Most of all, she loves a good story, whether from the collected texts of the Jewish people or the one in your heart. As a student she has served Reform and Conservative congregations in Ohio and Indiana, as well as a faith-based family homeless shelter here in Cincinnati.
After graduating from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA, Rachel got to know the Jewish non-profit landscape of New York City and the country in her roles at Avodah: The Jewish Service Corps and the Jewish Outreach Institute.
She is a Wexner Graduate Fellow and received her Masters in Religious Education from HUC-JIR in 2016.
Rachel lives with her family, including urban planner husband, Noam, and kids, Ami, Pele, Lior and Ziv in Northside. She can’t wait to continue writing the story of Temple Sholom with you all.
