7th Grade Service Learning Co-Teacher for 2024-2025

Help lead our innovative, experiential, 7th grade service learning program, Hineini. We do not just learn Torah, we DO Torah by going out into the community to care for the sick, visit the elderly, clean up our environment, feed the hungry, and more. This is an incredible opportunity to shape students in their b’nei mitzvah year to understand Judaism as a verb that makes our world a better place. By drawing connections between Torah and social action, our students connect more deeply with our tradition while making an impact in the community. 

Responsibilities Include:

  • Lesson planning
  • Teaching the connection between action and tradition
  • Leading volunteer visits to partner agencies
  • Communicating with parents on a regular basis
  • Documenting our work in photos
  • Assigning and collecting student written reflections
  • Assembling year-end yearbook
  • Assist with set-up and break-down of programs
  • Attend occasional faculty meetings with religious school staff
  • Other reasonable tasks related to the program

In this role, you will partner with our long-time Hineini teacher, Jane Dubro, who coordinates volunteer experiences and has overall responsibility for the curriculum and the program. You will play a vital role in working with Jane to create a meaningful experience for our 7th graders. 


  • Organized, punctual, detail oriented, flexible, and patient 
  • Religious School, Youth Work, or Teaching experience preferred but not required
  • Enthusiasm! 
  • Love of 7th graders

Hineini generally meets on Sunday mornings and time may vary based on the requirements of the volunteer site. The program runs approximately 26 times from September to May with weeks off for school vacations. Generally, two hours of teaching and one hour of prep each week.

7th Grade Hineini Program- Sundays 9:30am - 11:45am (hours may vary) + 1 hour prep
