The Leffell School is a dynamic, K-12 independent Jewish school serving approximately 860 students in Westchester County, 30 minutes north of New York City. We emphasize academic excellence, traditional Jewish learning and values, and a strong sense of community. As a result of retirements, the return to Israel of morim shlichim, and the growth of our program, we are seeking an outstanding candidate to fill our High School Judaic Studies Teacher/Rabbi in Residence position for the coming school year at our Upper School, located in Hartsdale, New York:

Our High School is seeking a dynamic, passionate rabbi and Jewish educator who also has experience envisioning, planning, and leading impactful Jewish experiences for high school students.


As a teacher, the ideal candidate is collaborative and capable of creating active lessons that engage students in content, while teaching critical skills for text learning, all while engendering a love of Judaism in the process. He or she will have mastery in teaching either Tanakh or Talmud or both, as well as Limudei Kodesh more broadly in a high school setting. We seek to ground our students in rigorous study of Jewish text, to engender a love of Talmud Torah, and to help our students develop the skills to support lifelong learning. 


Working in concert with our Associate Head of School, High School Principal, Dean of Students, and Student Life Coordinator, this colleague will teach a reduced course load and dedicate the balance of their time to envisioning and bringing to fruition programming connected to Shabbatonim, trips, Jewish and other holidays, and Jewish life in the school generally. This colleague will also participate as a leader in our Tefilah program.


Qualifications: This is a leadership position geared to a candidate with rabbinic ordination, at least several years of formal day school Judaic teaching experience, as well as experience with informal Jewish education. Candidates without ordination who possess a similar skillset are also encouraged to apply. A background in Jewish summer camping will be helpful. A master’s degree in Jewish Education, Bible, or Talmud is preferred. Generous compensation commensurate with experience.
