Religious School Rock Stars, a.k.a. Teachers

Germantown Jewish Centre (GJC) is seeking energetic, creative, Jewish educators to be a part of our vibrant and innovative team of Religious School (RS) teachers for the 2021-22 school year.

Our teachers are excited Jewish knowledge-seekers, youth-cheerleaders and community builders. They work to connect students to each other and to our rich and diverse Jewish heritage in a warm and curious educational environment. Teachers will receive direct support from the Education Director to build inclusive, empowered, compassionate and engaging classrooms with their students. Experienced and first-time teachers are encouraged to apply!

GJC is currently seeking teachers to teach Judaics on Sunday mornings between 9:30 am and 12:30 pm and on Wednesdays from approximately 4-6 pm in these classes: 2nd grade, combined 3rd-4th grade and combined 6th-7th grade. During January and February, classes take place on Saturday mornings instead of Sundays. While we are still formulating our plans for the coming year in light of the pandemic, we believe that Saturday/Sunday classes will meet in person while Wednesdays will most likely consist of individualized, virtual Hebrew instruction in which teachers will meet one-on-one or in very small groups with students via Zoom for a maximum of 2 hours total, most likely on Wednesdays.

GJC is a Conservative congregation in the heart of Philadelphia’s West Mount Airy neighborhood that serves Northwest Philadelphia’s multifaceted Jewish community. GJC is an inclusive community that values and embraces the diversity of all our families and staff. Our religious school is geared towards students (K-7) from all of GJC’s minyanim, including Dorshei Derekh (a Reconstructionist affiliate) and Minyan Masorti (a traditional egalitarian minyan)
