Religious School Teachers

Congregation Rodeph Shalom seeks teachers for our religious school (which we call Berkman Mercaz Limud). We are seeking teachers for the following grades/areas:
• 2nd Grade (curriculum focus is Torah)
• 4th Grade (curriculum focus is Israel)
• 6th Grade (curriculum focus is God and Torah)
• 7th Grade (curriculum focus is Holocaust and social justice)
• 8th-9th-10th Grades (curriculum varies)
• Permanent substitute (work every Sunday to assist where teacher absences create need)
Berkman Mercaz Limud emphasizes Jewish content and connection: creating and fostering friendships is an important part of our mission, as is exposing learners to a depth and breadth of Jewish tradition that they can use to create meaning in their lives at every age. The arts – visual, performing, literary – are integral to our approach to every subject. Weekly Torah study and t’filah specially geared for each age and stage are part of every session. We meet on Sunday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., from September 12, 2021 through May 22, 2022 (with a few Sunday’s off for holidays/school vacations).
Successful applicants will have:
- Some experience teaching in a Jewish religious school (which could include experience as a madrich/madricha during high school)
- Passion for working with children and for inspiring Jewish connections and knowledge
- Understanding of, and commitment to, Reform Judaism
- Commitment to a year of 30+ Sundays, 9:00 am to 12:30 pm, plus lesson-planning and parent updates during the week
- Interest in professional learning to grow as a Jewish educator, and ability to devote 10-15 paid hours/year to professional learning
- Interest in collaboration with fellow educators
