Part-time position for Monday or Wednesday afternoons/evenings

JCP’s b’nai mitzvah program is an independent, experiential Jewish after-school program that prepares children in 6th-7th grade to have b’nai mitzvah ceremonies. The program is part of the Jewish Community Project (JCP), a diverse, creative, inclusive, and open Jewish community and communal space in Lower Manhattan.

JCP is looking to hire talented and engaging b’nai mitzvah educators for the spring semester of the 2024-2025 school year to work one-on-one with b’nai mitzvah learners in a unique preparatory environment on Monday or Wednesday afternoons/evenings in-person. Educators will work individually with learners in a Hebrew/Torah skill-based curriculum, while boosting learners’ self-confidence and positive associations with Jewish tradition and Jewish adult role models. Each tutor is paired with 3-4 b'nai mitzvah learners.

Applicants must:

  • Be able to confidently teach Hebrew, Torah trope, and prayer skills
  • Be engaging, enthusiastic, and passionate about Jewish education
  • Have experience working in diverse educational settings
  • Be interested in learning and growing as a teacher and as a Jewish professional
  • Be a team player, open to creative and collaborative work
  • Feel comfortable in a flexible professional environment
  • Have an open-minded approach to Judaism and denominationalism
  • Be available to work without visa support
