Are you passionate about Jewish education? Do you want to inspire and excite children about learning and living Jewishly? Do you thrive in a dynamic, collaborative environment that supports and appreciates educational innovation? Then Shorashim at Temple Israel Center in White Plains is the place for you!
Our vibrant Conservative synagogue, located in White Plains (an easy in-person commute from NYC and Rockland, or an easy virtual commute from anywhere!), is looking for talented part-time educators for Shorashim, our K-6 religious school, for the coming school year.
Historically, Shorashim hours have been Sundays from 9:00-11:30am, and Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4:00-6:00pm. Of course, for the coming year things may look different and we are currently determining possible models for in-person and/or virtual learning. No matter what next year looks like, we know that we will need talented educators like you! We are happy to be as flexible as possible and in the past, educators have worked on one or more of the days depending on grades taught.
Qualifications and skills:
-Engaging, enthusiastic, and passionate about Jewish education
-Experience working in educational settings (preferred)
-Ability to build meaningful relationships with learners and families
-Familiarity with Torah, Jewish history, holidays, and ritual; comfort in decoding Hebrew necessary for some grade levels
-Basic knowledge of virtual teaching via Zoom
-Reflective and interested in professional learning and growth
-Ability to be a team player and collaborate with colleagues and full-time Education Team
Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. We’re looking to interview for lead educator and assistant educator positions.
