Director of Education - K-7th @ Anshe Emet

Anshe Emet Synagogue is a vibrant urban Conservative congregation with  a collaborative staff and clergy who serve a diverse, dynamic, and welcoming community of over 1,200 families.  Our congregation is comprised of 400 K-7th graders, with 200 enrolled in our religious school (attending 65+ different public and private schools) and 200 enrolled in area Jewish day schools.   

Anshe Emet strives to be a "center for Jewish life and learning." Over the past five years, we have heavily invested in educational innovation, experimentation, and exploration to create a 21st century vision of Jewish education.  Our vision is to craft a system of youth and family education which inculcates robust and meaningful knowledge, honors the diversity of very different learners and families, offers flexibility in time and space, and serves to cement lasting relationships among students, families, and the larger community.  On our journey towards realizing this dream, Anshe Emet has already created an extensive new religious school curriculum, formalized a professional partnership to support diverse learners, and piloted myriad initiatives to engage youth and families. We are seeking a leader to help us take our next steps. 

While the job responsibilities include the oversight of religious school operations, this is not a religious school principal position. In specific, our Director of Education will inspire and connect with our children and their families, in both religious school and day school, while providing exemplary education that fosters a love of Judaism.  The Director of Education  will report to the Director of Educational Innovation and serve on the education team, which provides Jewish education to the entire synagogue community.
