Description

Congregation Ohev Shalom in Wallingford, PA is seeking a 3rd grade religious school teacher for the 2022-2023 year.  We are a mid-sized USCJ-affiliated congregation that is dedicated to interfaith engagement and the ongoing work of inclusion.  

The 3rd grade curriculum is centered on the holiday cycle as well as an exploration of the first two books of the Torah, with an emphasis on asking questions and imagining midrash.  In addition, our 3rd graders explore parts of the Shabbat morning service as part of their Kabbalat HaSiddur (receving a prayerbook) ceremony. This is a milestone year/grade in our religious school, and this position is a wonderful opportunity for an educator that is interested in helping to craft/execute meaningful ritual together with students and families. 

We meet:

Sundays 9:00-12:15

Wednesdays 4:15-6:15

Our ideal candidate:

  • Models enthusiasm for and curiosity about Jewish life
  • Is familiar with the Jewish holiday cycle
  • Is familiar with the Shabbat morning service
  • Is comfortable teaching Hebrew letters and vowels, and knows some very basic modern Hebrew vocabulary
  • Has some familiarity with student-driven teaching practices

  • Has tools for building and maintaining a postive classroom culture
  • Is enthusiastic about collaboration with other teachers
  • Communicates regularly and effectively with parents/families of students
  • Responds well to respectful supervision
