Be a Jewish Hero…
Teach (or sub) in our Religious School!

Let’s talk about stepping up and being a teacher or substitute in our religious school. By now you know ours is not the kind of school some of us grew up hating. We need you to be part of the team making Jewish learning meaningful and enjoyable for our children.

You do not need to have training as a teacher or be a Jewish scholar. You do have to care deeply about transmitting Judaism to the next generation and enjoy spending time with children.

Gan – Kitah Gimel (K – 3) meet on Sundays from 9:30 am to noon.

Kitot Daled – Vav (4 – 6) meet on Sundays from 9:30 am to noon AND Thursday afternoons from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.

Kitot Zayin and Chet (7 & 8) meet on Monday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.

Fluency in Hebrew is only needed in some classes.

YOUNG ADULT ALERT: Is your college graduate coming home for a while? I would love to talk them about joining our faculty! Over the past few years we have been blessed with alumni of our school and our Madrikhim program returning as teachers or substitutes. Please let me know if they are Fairfield County bound.

Let’s go one step further…if you know someone who you suspect might become a good teacher, please let me know. You don’t have to tell them, and if you want, I will keep my source completely anonymous!

Call me at 336-1858 or e-mail
