Description

Bet Am Shalom, a Reconstrutionist congregation in White Plains, NY, is hiring teachers for our K-6 Torah La'am educational program for the 2024-2025 school year.  

The Bet Am Shalom community includes families from all over Westchester County, NY, who are interested in finding an open, warm, and inclusive community that embraces progressive thinking and traditional Jewish practice.  At Torah La'am, our teachers use an inquiry-based, child-centered approach; we encourage students to explore their relationsihp with Judaism through text, the arts, music and prayer, and Tikkun Olam.  We view and teach Hebrew as a vibrant, living language that connects us both to our traditional texts and liturgy as well as the modern State of Israel. 

Our classes meet on Sunday mornings, 9-11:30 am, and Wednesday afternoons, 4-6 pm.  Candidates should have basic Hebrew reading and comprehension skills, and comfort with a progressive, pluralistic approach to Jewish literacy, history, and values.  As a progressive, Zionist synagogue, we are committed to a nuanced approach to Israel Education that embraces and upholds both Ahavat Yisrael and B'tzelem Elohim.    

Please submit resume and cover letter to Lisa Jacobs, Director of Family Education and Engagement, at [email protected].
