Mesibat Shabbat Leader/Teacher at The Astoria Center of Israel

Mesibat Shabbat is a bi-monthly program that meets Shabbat mornings at ACI from 10:30-Kiddush (end of services), welcoming children ages 5-9. We are looking for a passionate, energetic educator who engages students and families in Jewish experiential learning.

This new class will compliment and support the Maskit Tuesday Alef and Bet classes, which teach Jewish values, Israel education, Jewish calendar programs, Hebrew skills, Torah stories, Jewish history and culture. The goal of this new class is to further engage families on Shabbat using different methods than used in the Tuesday program. Strong desire to engage students through music, art, games, and experiential style learning. No one sits at a desk.

About us: We are a growing congregational school at the Astoria Center of Israel, an unaffiliated, pluralistic, egalitarian synagogue, that has been serving the Jewish community of western Queens for 100 years.

Compensation: $75 per session+MTA travel stipend
