Seattle Jewish Community School is an inclusive Jewish elementary school and tight-knit community of educators, students and families. SJCS is committed to fostering growth for its students – academically, intellectually, socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically. An SJCS education is grounded in Jewish literacy, identity, values and community and prepares students to succeed and thrive.
SJCS has an immediate opening for a Judaic Studies Teacher. While SJCS is unaffiliated with any specific Jewish movement, the ideal candidate will possess great knowledge of Judaism, including Torah, Jewish values and texts, traditions, prayers and teachings. This position requires a teacher who can differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all learners, create meaningful learning experiences for children and maintain cooperative and effective working relations with colleagues.
Ideal candidates will possess a Bachelor’s or post-Bachelor’s degree in a related field and have at least two years of teaching experience in elementary school. A teaching certificate is preferred, as is strong knowledge of Hebrew. This position offers competitive pay and full benefits, including medical, dental, vision as well as short and long term disability.
Qualified candidates should send a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org and write Judaics Teacher in the subject line.
We are always interested in expanding our roster of substitute teachers. Teachers with experience teaching general or Judaic studies/Hebrew to students in grades K-5 are invited to send a cover letter and resume to email@example.com. Please include “Substitute Teacher” in the subject line.
