Congregation Kol Ami, an intimate and dynamic congregation in Elkins Park, PA, is hiring an energetic and creative Confirmation Academy Teacher (Grades 7-10) for the 2021-2022 academic year.

We expect teachers to work collaboratively to write lesson plans that create meaningful Jewish experiences and foster positive Jewish identity. Teachers will also be asked to attend three to four faculty meetings over the course of the academic year.

Knowledge of Jewish text and the Jewish life cycle
A positive Jewish identity and a positive attitude towards Jews of all backgrounds
