Congregation Ramath Orah is seeking a part-time Newsletter Editor / Communications Associate to support our shul for about 3-4 hours/week. Duties may be completed 100% remotely.
The position’s primary responsibility is to prepare our weekly email newsletter containing the schedule of upcoming events at the synagogue. Each week, working with our office manager, you will edit the newsletter to contain proper times for services, recent donors, mazal tovs, event descriptions, and so forth.
We ask that you prepare the draft every Wednesday so it can be reviewed and then emailed to our community every Thursday, adjusting for weekda Jewish holidays. Additional responsibilities include preparing marketing events on our website, preparing special event-specific announcements and fliers, and establishing standardized style guidelines and transliterations.
Attention to detail, ability to work independently, and strong organizational skills are crucial. Critical skills include total accuracy in spelling of names of community members and donors, proper grammar, and intimate familiarity with Jewish concepts such as weekly shabbat times and holiday-related changes (e.g., number of days of omer, Rosh Chodesh, etc.). Familiarity with HTML coding, image manipulation, web-CMS management (shulcloud), and mobile platform communications (e.g., WhatsApp) are also a plus.
Compensation is $60/week ($20/hr). The position is year-round. Contact [email protected] with your interest.
