Bet Am Shalom, s Reconstructionist congregation in White Plains, NY is currently hiring an Eary Childhood Educator for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year. This position is for our Sunday morning Nitzanim class (Kindergarten - first graders) which meets from 9:00 - 11:30 am. Candidate should be familiar with the alef-bet and be eager to introduce young children to the basic themes of the Jewish calendar, with a creative, hands on approach.
Bet Am Shalon 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 relationship with Judaism through text, the Arts, music and prayer, and Tikkun Olam. We view and teach Hebrew as a vibrant, living language which connects us both to our traditional texts and litrugy, and the modern state of Israel.
Teachers receive close supervision from the Director of Family Education and Engagement and meet as a team over dinner once a month.
