Bet Am Shalom, a Reconstrutionist congregation in White Plains, NY, is now hiring teachers for our 2022-2023 school year to teach elementary school classes in our Torah La'am educational program.
Bet Am Shalom includes families from all over Westchester County, NY, who are interested in finding an open, warm, and inclusive community that embraces progressive thinking and traditional Jewish practice. At Torah La'am, our teachers use an inquiry-based, child-centered approach; we encourage students to explore their relationsihp with Judaism through text, the arts, music and prayer, and Tikkun Olam. We view and teach Hebrew as a vibrant, living language that connects us both to our traditional texts and liturgy and the modern State of Israel.
We are currently seeking teachers for our elementary classes which meet on Sunday mornings, 9-11:30, and Wednesday afternoons, 4-6. Candidates should have basic Hebrew reading and comprehension skills, and comfort with a progressive, pluralistic approach to Jewish literacy, history, and values.
