Programming & Communications Director

Glacier Jewish Community/B'nai Shalom | Kalispell, MT, United States

Posted Date 6/23/2022

Purpose: The Glacier Jewish Community, an independent, egalitarian synagogue-without-walls serving the Flathead Valley in northwest Montana, seeks to hire a part-time Program & Communications Director to serve the administrative and community-building needs of our growing, innovative and joyful congregation. The main focus of this position is to provide administrative support for events, religious services, holidays, and various gatherings. A second key component of the job is serving as the communications hub for the congregation, Rabbi, and Steering Committee (Board of Directors). The ideal candidate possesses excellent writing and communication skills, is highly organized and adept with data entry and event planning. This position is best suited for someone who thrives with a flexible environment, enjoys information organization, and has fun with event planning. A familiarity with the Jewish calendar and synagogue life is desired but not required (the essentials can be learned). Position is open immediately. Open to remote work with minimal in-person. Prefer local and open to discussing expanding position to merit a relocation if you are the right match for the congregation.

Hours: This is a part-time position requiring 6-10 hours per week depending on the event schedule. During the Fall holidays (Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur) and the Spring holiday of Passover, hours might be higher and the congregation will require time-sensitive support. 

Benefits: Working with a great rabbi, supportive congregational leadership and a kind, grateful congregation in a beautiful part of the world.
