Our Clergy

  • Rabbi Goldsmith earned a BA in History at Marietta College, and an MA in History from the University of Kentucky.   After 20 years working in not for profit accounting, she decided to enter the seminary to become a rabbi and entered Hebrew Union College, earning ordination and an MAHL in 2007.  Rabbi Goldsmith was the solo rabbi at Temple Emanu-el in Dothan, Alabama for ten years.  While there she was active in the Interfaith community, and was on the boards of both the House of Ruth and Catholic Social Services.  She is passionate about Jewish education for both the young and not so young.  When she retired in 2017, she was named Rabbi Emerita.
    Rabbi Goldsmith and her husband Rob have two adult sons, Michael and Daniel.  They retired to Colorado to be closer to one of their sons, daughter-in-law and the most adorable granddaughter ever. However, Rabbi Goldsmith has been working part-time since they moved and is delighted to be serving Or Hadash as a part-time rabbi. The collaboration with the other clergy and the relationship with the Or Hadash community has been a wonderful experience.
  • Natalie began with us as a lay leader in 2003, and became our cantorial soloist when Rabbi Ted Stainman was hired as our first rabbi.  She has had private voice training, and her lovely voice and musical interpretations have been enhanced by attendance at the URJ Olin Sang Ruby Union Institute’s Hava Nashira and Had’rachah programs. She has also furthered her Jewish education by completing a Darshan Yeshiva program.

    Natialie earned her bachelor’s degree at Douglass College and a master’s degree in library science at Rutgers University. In 2010 she became a registered health information technologist. She works as the senior health information manager at Columbine Health Systems and is the health information manager at Centre Avenue Health and Rehabilitation. She has two children, Miriam and Noah. We are delighted that Natalie shares her joy of music in prayer with us at most services.

  • Hannah Bloomberg is a second-year rabbinical student at the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in Los Angeles. She grew up in Cleveland, Ohio where her interfaith family was actively involved in a local Reform congregation, Suburban Temple- Kol Ami.  Hannah received her undergraduate degree from the University of Rochester, where she studied psychology and neuroscience. She has had the privilege of working with many Jewish children, teens, and young adults through NFTY-NEL, URJ Camp George in Ontario, Hillel in Chicago, Moishe House, and leading Israel trips.  Her hobbies include tennis, ceramics, baking pies and cupcakes, and trying out new restaurants.  Hannah is thrilled to spend this time with the TOH community, and looks forward to singing, praying, and learning together!
