Authentic Leadership and Just Love with Rabbi Miriam Terlinchamp – Show Notes for Episode 4
What does authentic leadership look like, and how do you lead people when you, at first, don’t fit their expectations?
In this episode my friend, hevruta (study partner) in Rabbis Without Borders, and teacher teaches us about leadership when you may not be exactly what other people expect you to be. We also talk about her advice for people looking for a way into Judaism, the power of forming communities online, the tricky thing about interfaith work, and spiritual self care for activists.
