Romemu Brooklyn, a partner shul of Romemu in Manhattan, seeks an awesome full-time, high-energy, go-getting Administrative & Community Coordinator to help build our burgeoning spiritual community through excellence in operations, administration, clergy support, event planning/management, audacious hospitality, and member engagement.
Romemu Brooklyn currently meets one Friday evening and one Shabbat morning each month for services, with plans to expand. In a word, Romemu services are neo-hasidic - both ecstatic and contemplative, inclusive and egalitarian, and wonderfully musical. Over 400 unique individuals have come to services with us multiple times and many have expressed a desire to help Romemu Brooklyn evolve, expand and reach our potential. We have been gathering in the Park Slope and Prospect Heights neighborhoods in non-traditional venues as we search for more permanent space for our growing community. During COVID, we have transitioned to virtual Shabbat and holiday services, and some small, socially-distanced in-person events.
The Romemu Brooklyn Administrative & Community Coordinator will work with clergy and volunteers in taking Romemu Brooklyn to the next level through:
Soup-to-nuts operations planning and coordination of Shabbat services, High Holy Days, B Mitzvah classes and services, adult learning, and other community programs, following established practices and making as-needed improvements.
Performance of all administrative tasks, from being the clergy’s right-hand person to producing programs for services to ordering supplies to maintaining budget spreadsheets to updating the website etc.
Support of volunteer management.
Reliable and inviting interactions with members of the community, ensuring follow up by the appropriate Romemu Brooklyn team member.
Bringing the “on the ground” perspective to planning discussions to make things go as smoothly as possible and to streamline costs and effort.
Organized, reliable, thorough, resourceful, and responsive?
Energetic, cool-under-pressure, resilient, and optimistic?
Creative, curious, and collaborative?
Someone who does what it takes? Who sees each experience as a learning opportunity and pursues continuous improvement? Who simultaneously keeps the big picture in mind while tending to the smallest details, appreciating that small things can make a big difference to people’s experiences?
An energetic can-doer who gets fulfillment from seeing things through from start to finish, from pulling off large-scale events to managing to a “zero inbox”? Who sees no task as too big or too small to achieve the goal? Who is willing and able to haul event supplies, equipment, and boxes, and help set up spaces?
A people person who’s passionate about community building and inspired by Romemu’s mission? Motivated by knowing you will be a key player in our growth and success?
Technically proficient, using tech tools to make work more efficient and effective?
Interested in working 40 hours/week, some of which will happen during typical Monday-Friday work hours and some of which will happen on Jewish holidays, Shabbat, Sundays, and evenings as needed?

This position can be done virtually through 5781 (2020-2021), but will ultimately be housed in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
