Religious School Teacher

Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple | New Brunswick, NJ, United States

Posted Date 7/20/2022
Description

Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple, a Reform synagogue in Central New Jersey, is seeking part-time Religious School teachers for the 2022-23/5783 school year on Saturday mornings and Tuesday afternoons.

Anshe Emeth’s Religious School provides a quality Jewish education for students Pre-K through 12th grade. Our rabbis, professional staff and temple members share their commitment to education and the celebration of Jewish life. Our curriculum emphasizes God, Torah and the people of Israel through the study of Jewish religious practice and prayers, holiday and customs, history, Hebrew and a commitment to Israel.

AEMTRS Goals:

Learners of all ages will be on personal and communal journeys toward lives that are…

  • … guided by Jewish ethics, values, and ideals
  • … lived meaningfully through Jewish practice and tradition.
  • … actively engaged with our congregational community as well as K’lal Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael.

We believe that: 

Jewish tradition is a rich and deep sourcebook that guides, informs and illuminates, and directs the way people understand the world and make decisions. That Jewish tradition records many paths people have taken in search of connection to God and Godliness. That Am Yisrael constitutes ever broadening circles, beginning with family and moving through synagogue, local Jewish community and the Jewish world community. It comprises the Jewish people today and throughout history. That Eretz Yisrael encompasses the land, state and people of Israel, both today and throughout history. That Hebrew is the universal language of Am Yisrael and, therefore, is necessary in order to have full access to Jewish Peoplehood.

We aim to inspire our students live Jewishly with this understanding in mind. Please click the link below to read more about Anshe Emeth.
