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, rabbi@mayantikvah.org.

 

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.
