In addition, we have a Family Education program that meets once a month, generally on either Friday evenings, Saturdays or Sundays. Teachers will receive the school calendar before the start of the year. BJC provides the curricula and lesson plans and teachers are encouraged to adapt them to fit their teaching style and students’ needs.
TICHON (TEEN) TEACHER (IN PERSON):
Our teen program for post-B’nai Mitzvah students in 8th-10th grades meets once a month on Saturday mornings. This class focuses on understanding Jewish values and traditions to interpret social justice issues. Our Tichon teacher will draft lesson plans based on previous years’ curricula and their own interests. The Tichon students participate in the once-a-month family education program.
HEBREW TEACHER (REMOTE):
Hebrew lessons are conducted during after school and evening hours virtually one-on-one between our teachers and students in grades 4-7. Teachers meet their students twice a week for 20 minutes each session. Teachers will adapt each lesson to each students’ current level of proficiency, focusing on Hebrew decoding and prayer proficiency. The schedule for Hebrew instruction is flexible and will be determined between the teacher and student with the help of the Religious School Coordinator.
Qualified applicants will be notified for virtual and in-person interviews.
