Come teach Jewish Studies with us this fall!

We are seeking a full time educator who cares deeply about teaching in a pluralistic environment, thinks hard about how Jewish texts are relevant to students’ lives, recognizes the role Jewish literacy plays in identity building, and enjoys creating an inspirational classroom environment and teaching the research paper writing process. Qualified candidates must be eligible to work in the U.S.  

The Jewish Community High School of the Bay needs an experienced Jewish Studies teacher in a full time capacity to teach three Jewish Thought classes and another text based Jewish Studies class. 

When you join our Jewish Studies department you will:

  • teach 3 classes of Jewish Philosophy and one other Jewish Studies course
  • have time during the school day to prepare great lessons and give students the individual help they need
  • be supported by a faculty supervisor, learning specialist, and school counselor to help you focus on your teaching
  • work alongside colleagues who will both push you to be a better teacher and welcome your help in improving their teaching
  • work with supportive administrators who encourage innovative teaching, expect professional growth, and embrace research based pedagogy
  • be directly involved in creating an inclusive and equitable environment toward  differentiating your teaching, and honoring the diverse Jewish identities of our students

 As a pluralistic Jewish high school, JCHS’ students represent the diversity of Jewish practice and identity in the Bay Area. Faculty commitment to the mission of the school is essential, but religious affiliation is not a factor in hiring. We believe our students learn best from a diverse faculty and extended professional community and welcome people of any race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation and marital status to come work with our students.

At JCHS salaries are one component of a compensation package that includes retirement contributions, daily lunch, on-site parking, health, dental, vision, and life/AD&D insurance. The anticipated full-time annual base salary range the school reasonably expects to pay candidates for the position of a Jewish Studies Teacher is $60,000-$100,000 depending on factors such as the candidate’s years of professional experience, with additional stipends available for advanced degrees and certain additional duties.

If this sounds like a community of learners you would like to join, email a cover letter and resume as one PDF document to:  [email protected]
