Torah Reader | Baal Koreh
Kehillat Ma’arav (KM) is a Conservative USCJ-affiliated congregation located in Santa Monica, California. KM fosters a welcoming, inclusive, and participatory Jewish community rooted in God, Torah, and Israel that strengthens tradition and identity through educational, religious, and spiritual growth.
KM is seeking a Torah Reader (Baal Koreh) to serve its active and engaged community of approximately 200 member-families and read Torah on Shabbat and holidays (except High Holidays). KM follows the triennial cycle of Torah reading. Currently, services start at 10:00am. The start date of this position is August 1, 2022.
Must be well-versed in Hebrew and Torah trope (Cantillation) and should have sufficient experience that would enable the Baal Koreh to chant the portion clearly and audibly. Our synagogue does not require that this person be within walking distance.
