We cultivate in students a lifelong love of learning within the context of Jewish knowledge and heritage. Our school is located on two campuses — one for the Lower School and one for the Upper School — located about two miles apart in West Orange, serving approximately 525 students from more than 60 communities across New Jersey.

Golda Och Academy Upper School is seeking a creative, passionate Jewish Studies middle school and high school teacher to join our team as a leave replacement beginning late January 2020 through the end of the school year in June.

The ideal candidate brings a degree in Jewish studies, with an out-of-the-box vision of how to inspire students to engage with Jewish values through Jewish text.
