Description

Kulanu is the "religious school" of the Orangetown Jewish Center (OJC, Conservative) in Orangeburg, Rockland County, NY, just over the NJ/NY border, off the Palisade Parkway.  We are an experiential, project-oriented program with highly-committed rabbis and parent body.  The students are enthusiastic and engaged -- a mehaya!  We are looking for a combined K - 1 teacher, once a week on Tuesdays from 4:15 - 6:15 pm, and a 2nd - 3rd grade teacher twice a week, with the combined grades on Tuesdays from 4:15 - 6:15 pm and the 3rd grade only on Thursdays at the same hours.  Classes are small and there will be a high school aide on some or most days. There are no classes on Sundays.  

Teachers should be creative, nurturing, have a strong background in Jewish Studies and Tefillah, and experience teaching the primary grades.  

Experience differentiating/teaching to a range of levels is a big plus for both positions.  On Tuesdays, the 2nd - 3rd grade will learn Jewish Studies together and Hebrew reading in two leveled groups.  On Thursdays when the 3rd grade meets on their own, they will study the JS topic in greater depth and continue their Hebrew reading & Tefillah.  

The Kulanu Director provides guidance and support in all areas and the Assistant Director is responsible for logistics.  There is a curriculum and Hebrew reading textbooks and materials.  Lesson plans are created by the teachers with the support of the Director.  There is communal davening at the beginning of class, music class every day, and a break for snack, which is provided.  Devoted HS aides help in class.  The faculty is warm and collegial.  Faculty input is valued in planning special programs and faculty feedback is important to us in improving the program. 

Salary is comensurate and includes a faculty orientation meeting, a monthly staff meeting from 6:15 - 7 pm, a brief email to parents after each class, and two newsletters and progress reports a year.  

Please send your resume with a cover letter in your email.  I look forward to speaking with you!  

Rabbi Kniaz, Kulanu Director
