The Kitchen is a religious community, grounded in serious exploration of Jewish tradition, text, and ritual for people with all levels of Jewish knowledge and experience.
We see ourselves as translators. We want to connect Torah to today, heaven to earth. As such, we use every tool we can find: We combine elements of the unexpected, secular, and beautiful in the exploration of Jewish life.
At almost ten years old, The Kitchen hosts 300+ member households and hundreds of non-members who participate in our events. We get together multiple times a week (now on line) for learning, eating, praying, and acts of service in locations across San Francisco. We believe that Jewish religious practice can transform: It can change lives, make meaning, and invest people in the world.
We’re looking for someone with a background in traditional internal/external communications, who’s also open to leading marketing and social media work. We want a strategic thinker who’s proficient at implementing their creative ideas and ready to work closely with our rabbis and full Kitchen staff to express our vision.
