The Jewish Community School of Greater Los Angeles is an exciting and new collaboration of many Los Angeles based synagogues to create the most engaging and exciting Jewish education in the city. Run by Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, the focus of our Community School is to give our students the tools to become successful Jewish adults. We prepare our students for the world by teaching them to cultivate compassion, empathy, and practical skills through Project Based Learning paired with interdisciplinary STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) education. We teach our students how to weave their Jewish identity into their 21st-century selves to discover a life full of meaning.
We are looking for creative, growth-minded, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, part-time teachers for Sunday mornings (9:00 am – 12:15 pm). While we anticipate having in-person classes next year, we know that some virtual learning may be required. We expect our teachers to be comfortable teaching online, and for our students' virtual experience to be equally as engaging as in person. Our teachers are people who want to spend time teaching students, learning about education, and investing in the future of our Jewish community.
Our educators do not need background in pedagogy (though it is preferable), but do need to have a commitment to professional development about education. Teachers with experience with Reggio Emilia and Project Based Learning are preferable, but so are those interested to learn these pedagogies. Teachers should be familiar with liberal Jewish traditions and liturgy, have experience working with children (preferably in a Jewish learning environment), and have a strong sense of professionalism. We provide a stable and professional work environment of mutual respect and life-long learners. If you would like to become part of our future, please submit your resume for employment consideration.
On-site locations: Beverly Hills, Pomona or Santa Monica. Please specify your desired location.
