Congregation Tikkun v’Or is seeking a Spiritual Leader for a part time position with our congregation in Ithaca, NY. Tikkun v’Or is a 135-member progressive and diverse congregation made up of people with a wide range of spiritual and religious experiences. Our core values are best described by three words: Spirit, Community, and Justice, and we strive to integrate these values into all aspects of our congregational life. Our congregation’s strength comes from its open and welcoming nature. All are welcome to participate with us in worship, rituals and other activities. We are willing to grapple with difficult and divisive issues, including Israel-Palestine, doing our best to respect all opinions and be sure that everyone has a seat at the table.
We seek a warm and dynamic individual with the ability to make the ancient traditions of Judaism meaningful and accessible in the 21st century; someone with a passionate commitment to social justice and the ability to be welcoming to people of all ages including non-Jewish congregants and guests, people of color and people who identify as LGBTQI+. Our ideal candidate will be willing to work collaboratively with our active and engaged leadership.
We will consider an ordained rabbi or cantor or an individual with equivalent professional education. Specific responsibilities will be worked out with the candidate of our choice. Compensation for this position will be $35,000 - 50,000 plus benefits, with six weeks of vacation.
