Part-Time Teacher 

Ma'yan Tikvah – A Wellspring of Hope

Wayland, MA



Help grow a new and innovative religious school!


Ma'yan Tikvah – A Wellspring of Hope, a small alternative Jewish community that holds services outdoors all year, has successfully started an outdoor Jewish education program for children in the Metrowest Boston area, Y'ladim BaTeva, and is seeking a part-time teacher. 


The school meets one Sunday a month outdoors in the spring and fall and a combination of indoors and outdoors in the winter, has monthly Shabbat or holiday programming that combines indoor and outdoor experiences, and two 30-minute online classes per month. An optional Hebrew learning track is available online. 


Classes are for children in grades K-5. Teachers work creatively in partnership with the rabbi to plan activities to fit a broader curriculum. 


In addition, a position is available, ideally for the teacher, to provide a children/family service on the first day of Rosh HaShanah and on Yom Kippur morning.


Skills and Experience Needed:

--Love of the outdoors and experience with hiking and other outdoor activities

--Experience with children in either formal or informal education setting

--Love of Judaism and knowledge of basic Hebrew and Jewish studies

--Creativity, warmth, and an interest in exploring new experiences

--Experience with outdoor Jewish education is a plus


This job has the potential for growth in terms of both additional teaching hours and greater responsibility as the school grows.


Salary is negotiable.


Please submit a letter or video explaining why you think you are the right person for this job and a resume, along with contact information and references, to Rabbi Katy Allen,


We have been involved in many projects over the years, and we invite you to learn by example how you can help your community together with Ma'yan Tikvah - A Wellspring of Hope.
