My name is Seth Goldstein, and I am a rabbi. I serve Temple Beth Hatfiloh and the Jewish community of Olympia, Washington (area code 360) and from my perch in the beautiful northwest of the US, I attempt to have a 360 degree view of life, Judaism, community and the issues facing my corner of the universe and beyond.
I am a fellow of Rabbis Without Borders, a project of CLAL, and you can find me blogging monthly on the RWB blog at My Jewish Learning. I recently completed the Clergy Leadership Program of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality. I was a Brickner Fellow with the Religious Action Center, and am currently a member of cohort 3 of the Clergy Leadership Incubator.
In addition to my rabbinic studies, I have earned a Certificate in Nonprofit Management, trained in professional mediation, and am a certified Gottman Seven Principles Leader through the Gottman Institute.
I was also recently featured in a story in ThurstonTalk.
