Milton-Gottesman Jewish Day School is an equal opportunity employer and makes all employment decisions, including those related to recruitment, hiring, training, and promotion of individuals on the basis of their ability and job-related qualifications and without regard to race, color, religion, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, related medical conditions, or breastfeeding), national origin, age, disability, genetic information, veteran status, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, family responsibilities, matriculation, political affiliation, credit information, status as a victim or family member of a victim of domestic violence, sexual offenses, or stalking, or any other protected characteristic as established by federal, state, or local anti-discrimination laws. 

The School does not discriminate on the basis of religion, but as a religious educational institution rooted in Jewish living and values, we do give preference in hiring to Jewish educators who are able to provide additional instruction and cultural or religious context for elements of our curriculum based in Judaism. At the same time, we encourage qualified, non-Jewish applicants to apply.

Pervasive inequalities in hiring have caused people to apply for a position only if they meet all of the qualifications. If you do not have all of the qualifications listed, but are passionate about our mission, motivated, and believe you have transferable skills from other industries, we encourage you to apply for this position.
