We are a liberal egalitarian Conservative synagogue in Western Suffolk looking for a Cantor/Educator.  The position encompasses davening at all Shabbat and Holiday services as well as attending synagogue observances and events that relate to his/her position.  The Cantor is expected to partner with the Rabbi on the bima.  As Cantor Educator (of the Religious School) he/she will carry out all responsibilities necessary to oversee/organize and conduct an "after-school" Religious School, currently meeting two days per week, be present in the building during Religious School hours (Tuesday and Thursday afternoons) and oversee/attend all activities in which the Religious School students participate.  We currently have 33 students attending this program. 

The applicant should be a person steeped in the knowledge of Jewish song and prayer, enthusiastic and energetic, capable of relating to the Rabbi, professional staff, students and faculty, with exceptional organizational and interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate in person and via technology.  As Cantor, we hope he/she will invigorate our services both through vocal and instrumental music.
