Bucket List - Miriam Horwitz
Miriam Horwitz is fairly new to Metro Detroit, establishing herself as a Michigander in June of 2014. Aside from being married to Rabbi Dan (and thus co-hosting a significant number of The Well’s programs in their shared home), Miriam is a certified ASL-English interpreter who works in myriad settings. Appointed by Governor Snyder to the State of Michigan’s advisory council on Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing, she served a three year term. Miriam is now serving as an appointee on the Board of Interpreters for the State of Michigan’s Licensing And Regulatory Affairs department. In a previous professional life, she toured the globe as an actor and taught theatre, dance and literacy learning through the arts. Jewishly, Miriam started the Inclusion Fund for Moishe House to enable Deaf individuals in their 20s and 30s to attend Moishe House educational events. Miriam is passionate about the ritual of Rosh Chodesh (the ancient Jewish ritual of women gathering each month around the time of the new moon) as a vehicle to promote wellness, spirituality and community for women, and has helped to create and support numerous Rosh Chodesh groups in Metro Detroit. Miriam is a member of the ROI Community, and loves experimenting with new recipes, crafting and DIY projects, art-journaling and making music with her husband and their kiddos, Jonah and Micah.
