The Richmond Free Press observes the passing of religious leader Rosella M. Wooldridge:

Rosella Murray Wooldridge followed an unusual path as a religious leader in the Richmond area. At age 21, she founded the Church of God Tabernacle of Christ on Church Hill where she served as pastor. After 20 years as a Christian minister, she made a big switch. She converted herself and her children to Judaism and turned her church building near 28th and M streets into a synagogue called Temple Beth Shean.
