Sunday School Teachers

The Free Synagogue of Flushing, a progressive Reform congregation in Queens, New York, seeks an imaginative and energetic Hebrew and Religious School Teacher for the 2020-21 academic year. Our program meets from 9:30 to Noon on Sundays during the school year, and emphasizes basic Hebrew and Shabbat liturgy, Jewish holidays and traditions, Jewish history, Jewish values, and Torah.

Our ideal candidate will have classroom experience, knowledge of the traditions and values of Reform Judaism, and enthusiasm for increasing Jewish learning and connectedness within the congregation. She or he will need to be able to work collaboratively, and be comfortable approaching our community with an inclusive spirit, recognizing that many students in the school are from multicultural, interfaith or nonreligious families.

This position has some growth opportunities as well beyond teaching on Sunday mornings. Potential additional roles over time include one or more of the following:
• Providing overall program coordination for the school, working with the Executive Director to set curriculum and ensure teacher coverage, books, supplies.
• Additional Hebrew tutoring as needed to promote students' readiness to begin B’nai Mitzvah studies.
• Support the Executive Director and clergy in conducting special programs for the religious school and free-standing events around selected holidays, as appropriate.
• Engage parents through weekly emails about what their students are learning in class.

Substitute teaching opportunities may be available earlier in 2020 on an as-needed basis.

Salary will depend on qualifications and experience.

The Free Synagogue of Flushing has a longstanding tradition of embracing the diversity of its community and welcoming all people: interfaith families, LGBTQ, every ethnicity and heritage, and spanning the generations. The Religious and Hebrew School currently includes about 35 students between grades 2 and 7, and includes teen and parent education components as well.
