Hebrew teacher

Our unique, engaging, interactive religious school, Shoresh, is seeking a 5th and 6th grade Hebrew teacher for our Shabbat-based program. We are a close-knit and warm community focusing on project based learning and activities that are learner-centered and focus on Jewish experiences. Ideally, successful candidates will remain in the position in future school years as well.

The Hebrew teacher is responsible for teaching Hebrew to 2 classes on Fridays. If desired, the position can also include students during the week through our Hebrew@Home midweek program. Hebrew@Home is our virtual midweek Hebrew program where each learner has a weekly video conference-based individual session with their teacher. Activities on Fridays focus more on teaching learners about t'filah and liturgy, while midweek Hebrew@Home sessions focus on decoding and reading Hebrew. The Hebrew@Home component of this position has flexibility in how many students the teacher can take on, and it is not a required component of this job.

The ideal teacher will:
– Have experience teaching Hebrew and teaching elementary school students in a religious school setting
– Be able to work Fridays 4-6:30 pm in a Reform environment
– Have energy and passion for engaging religious school students to develop Jewish identity
– Be comfortable teaching in creative and interactive learning environment
– Be a dependable team member and a strong communicator with positive references
– Have experience working with 5th/6th grade children or similar

The position includes part-time work on Fridays, 4:00-6:30 pm, during the approximately 24 remaining 2019-20 school year sessions through May. Salary is hourly, commensurate with experience, and competitive with area religious schools. Compensation can also include help with transportation to and/or from Hyde Park.
