Makom Community is looking for Assistant Teachers to join our team. Do you…

  • Want to be involved in cutting-edge urban Jewish learning for children and their families?
  • See yourself as an innovator of the field of Jewish Education?
  • Want to be part of a team that values your creativity and will challenge you to grow professionally and personally?
  • Seek to be inspired and empowered by peers and experienced educators?

Key Duties & Responsibilities: 

  • Facilitate Jewish learning for children in grades PreK-5 (ages 4-12) Monday through Friday during afterschool enrichment and camp programming
  • Facilitate specialty programming for afterschool children based on your specific expertise i.e. music, drama, sports, movement etc.
  • Partake in regular goal setting and reflections for personal and professional growth
  • Develop new skills and ways of thinking related to working with children and families

Typical Schedule: 

  • August camp days are Monday- Thursday from 8:30am-3:30pm
  • Afterschool Enrichment, beginning in September, runs Monday to Friday 2:00pm to 6:00pm

NOTE: This may vary depending on the schedule of our public school children. Preference will be given to applicants who can work multiple days a week. This could be a full-time role for the right person if our learners are on a staggered schedule, which would mean many more program hours at Makom Community.
