Tufts Hillel seeks a part-time Jewish Educator to assist in building and supporting the Reform minyan at Tufts and to provide outreach to the greater Tufts student community. This includes leading programs, occasional services and text study, and serve as a pastoral/advisory resource to students. Individuals historically underrepresented in rabbinic communities (i.e., gender/racial minorities) are strongly encouraged to apply.
- Rabbinic ordination from an accredited Reform Rabbinical school.
- Long history of engagement with the Reform community—ideally, grew up in the Reform community
- Has experience and/or works well with university-aged students—would be comfortable with Tufts Hillel’s student-led staff-supported model
A significant part of this rabbi’s role will be to reach out to students outside Hillel with the specific goal of providing access points to Jewish identity and making the Hillel space feel accessible and welcoming. This could include holding office hours, getting coffee with students, and more.
Serve as resource to students for pastoral/life cycle support and general advice.
Lead text studies and other religious/spiritual events, open to all, but through a Reform Jewish lens.
Attend Reform community events and occasionally attend Shabbat services, especially on big, themed weeks. When attending Shabbat services, they will be encouraged to deliver Divrei Torah to both minyanim (Reform and Conservative).
Support the Reform minyan leaders with any theological or community-building questions.
