Description

We are looking for passionate educators to join our growing Religious School community for the coming school year (2024-2025, 5785)!

Congregation Ohev Shalom is a mid-sized progressive Conservative congregation in Wallingford, PA (Philly suburbs). Our community is growing, and we are looking to add teachers to our expanding school program. Our school is open to Early Learning (3 years old) through 7th grade, emphasizing experiential learning and relationship building as keys to helping our students develop a strong Jewish identity.

Each grade focuses on Hebrew language, Jewish holidays, and Jewish values through the lens of their overarching curricular topic. Teachers are asked to write their own lesson plans based on the curriculum and suggested activities provided, with assistance by the Education Director as needed. We encourage you to bring your passion, expertise, talents, and Judaism into the classroom and make the curriculum your own!

Additionally, Wednesday (3rd-7th grade) teachers are asked to create and lead elective classes for our older students, designed to explore Judaism through various lenses and topics. Previous electives have included various Jewish crafts, writing a Purim Shpiel, reading current events, Torah yoga, learning Jewish music, fantasy Israeli basketball, and more!

Teaching is in-person, and our school meets on the following days and times:

Sundays (whole school)-9:00am-12:15pm

Wednesdays (3rd-7th grades)-4:15-6:15pm

Salary is $45-55/hr, based on education and previous experience.

To apply, please send a resume and a brief cover letter sharing what interests you in our school and how you’d be a great fit to our Education Director Allison Rovensky at [email protected]

If you have any questions about our school or specific grades, please contact Allison Rovensky at [email protected] or (610) 874-1465 ext. 109.

We can’t wait to meet you!
