The Leffell School is a dynamic, K-12 independent Jewish school serving approximately 860 students in Westchester County, 30 minutes north of New York City. We emphasize academic excellence, traditional Jewish learning and values, and a strong sense of community. We seek to ground our students in rigorous study of Tanakh, to engender a love of Talmud Torah, and to help our students develop the skills to support lifelong learning. 


Our High School is seeking a dynamic, warm, experienced Tanakh educator to join our High School Tanakh Team, teaching grades 9 - 12. The ideal candidate is collaborative and capable of creating active lessons that engage students in content, while teaching critical skills for text learning, all while engendering a love of Judaism in the process. He or she will have mastery in teaching Tanakh and Limudei Kodesh more broadly in a high school setting, paired with an evidence-based, backward design approach to teaching and learning, and the ability to teach students at a variety of different levels. This colleague will also participate in our Tefilah program and in the Jewish life of the school more generally.


Qualifications: Experience teaching Tanakh and Judaic Studies in a formal classroom setting is required. Experience teaching high school students specifically will be helpful, as will the ability to teach in Hebrew. Background also in Talmud and rabbinic literature is a bonus. Generous compensation commensurate with experience.
