South Peninsula Hebrew Day School of Sunnyvale, California, is looking for our next Head of School to start July 1, 2025 or earlier based on your availability.

About us

The mission of South Peninsula Hebrew Day School is to provide students with an excellent education in General and Judaic studies, and to instill in them Jewish values, and a love of Torah, the Jewish people and Israel.

Founded in 1972, South Peninsula Hebrew Day School is an Orthodox institution that embraces the sophistication and multiculturalism of the Bay Area while adhering to traditional Jewish observance. We encourage service to the larger Jewish community and a love of Israel.

Although our students share a common heritage, they represent a wide range of cultural, national and religious backgrounds, and we treasure their diversity.

We serve approximately 250 students from 18 months old through eighth grade on a green, park-adjacent campus in Silicon Valley. We are about to kick off a major capital campaign to create an endowment for the school’s future.


About our next Head of School

You are a non-judgmental, Orthodox role model. Our community is religiously very diverse, and we respect and honor that diversity: Charedi, Chiloni, Dati Zioni, and Masorti. You don’t necessarily have to be a rabbi because we have a clear religious identity and great partnerships with community rabbis who can support you. 

You know how to plan, collaborate, and execute with a great team. You understand the educational needs of a nursery-8th grade school while accepting the responsibility of making hard decisions when necessary in order to prioritize the success of the school.

You are a respectful and transparent communicator. While everyone appreciates strong public speaking and great writing, we prioritize strong one-on-one interpersonal skills. 

You understand school finances and how they relate to the ability of the school to do its work. You can be an experienced and enthusiastic fundraiser with a long track record, or you can be interested in learning. You have experience with the budgeting process.

Additional information

First-year compensation of $225,000 to $275,000 and commensurate with experience. Benefits include unlimited paid time off, medical insurance, retirement savings plan, relocation, full tuition remission for any eligible children or grandchildren, hosting subsidy, and more.

We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment. Please contact us to request accommodation.

Please apply online now at http://bit.ly/sphds-hos-opening for immediate consideration by the decision-making team. Please address other questions to Lydia Musher ([email protected]). Thank you for your consideration.
