Religious School Teachers Needed at Temple Shalom in Medford for 2022-2023
Are you creative with children? Do you have camp/classroom/youth group experience in a Jewish setting? Are you capable of teaching Hebrew reading and prayers? If the answer to any or all these questions is “yes”, then please consider applying for a teacher position with us. Please send a cover letter and resume to email@example.com.
Our synagogue school meets on Sunday, 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and Wednesday, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. Current teacher openings are for 1 and 2 day per week classes which meet on Sunday morning and Wednesday afternoon, and one teacher’s assistant position for Sunday morning. Curriculum subjects vary by grade, and they include: Hebrew, Prayer, Holidays, Bible, Israel, History and Mitzvot (obligations).
Applicants should be excited to teach children, have a strong Jewish background, and be willing to collaborate on lesson planning (follow a written curriculum and submit a lesson plan prior to class). Temple Shalom is a Conservative Movement affiliated synagogue. We offer teacher support, generous compensation, a relaxed setting and small student groups. Candidates will need a car for transportation, ideally, although we are approximately a 30-minute walk from Tufts University, and we help coordinate and provide carpools among Tufts teachers.
