Beit Midrash Facilitator position:
This position requires attention to two separate aspects of the program: 1) facilitating the teaching assistant program (Madrichim), and 2) teaching for one hour. An ideal candidate will have the skill set necessary to create a schedule, assign participants to classrooms, conduct observations, provide constructive, supportive feedback, help with lesson planning and troubleshoot challenges with the participants and classroom teachers in order to cultivate leadership skill development and a positive experience for all. The second aspect of the program is presenting lessons that would introduce the teens to tools that the Jewish tradition offers to tackle challenges they will face as they transition through high school and onto college. This program would, first and foremost, be a fun, stimulating, and relaxing space in which to bond with Jewish friends, but would also provide high interest, 45 minutes lessons about how Judaism can be a part of their daily lives. We are looking for someone who is energetic, organized, engaging, and wants to be a part of a thriving, warm, welcoming, and growing community at our Glazer (Koreatown) campus.
