Religious School Teachers

Part Time
Temple Emanu-El
Westfield, NJ

Sunday and Midweek teachers wanted for the 2022-2023 school year at Temple Emanu-El of Westfield, in Westfield, NJ. Our school is large, exciting, and diverse, with full inclusion for all children and their families. We provide detailed and supportive curriculum, regular and meaningful professional development, generous pay, and an open invitation to be part of the community in all the ways that suit you.
You will also be supported by a robust teen madrichim program on every level. With over 50 teens involved, our teens make sure you will always have supplies, shadows, support, and even co-teachers. We are proud that several of our madrichim have returned as teachers in their own right.

On Sunday mornings, Hebrew knowledge is a welcome bonus but not a requirement, as we focus on other learning in most grades.
On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons we teach small group Hebrew pods. Each pod lasts 45 minutes, and there are three time slots every day. It is not necessary to be available for every time slot on every day, or on any day. You can choose the times that are acceptable to you.

On Wednesday nights, our 6th and 7th grade program welcomes exciting, dynamic teachers who invest of themselves into making learning robust and fun. Hebrew knowledge is not necessary.
