Judaic Studies Teacher-Mashgiach/Mashgicha Ruchani

We are looking for that special Jewish educator who is ready to have a deep impact on our school community.

If so, then this dream job is made for you!

The Mashgiach/Mashgicha Ruchani will oversee religious guidance, student activities, experiential education, tefillah and serve as a full-time Judaic Studies teacher.

-Into the pioneering spirit of the early Zionist chalutzim and have dreams of tapping into that energy in a modern educational setting.

The ideal candidate will be a dynamic Jewish educator who has 2-4 years of teaching and/or camp experience, who seeks to form deep and meaningful relationships with students to inspire their leadership and growth.
