Youth & Young Families Coordinator
Beth Tikvah is more than just a Conservative synagogue . Our community is vibrant, forward-looking and dedicated to the Jewish future. We are a dynamic, egalitarian, vital Jewish congregation offering rich and varied social, cultural, and educational activities to serve the needs of a diverse and growing membership.
IS THIS YOUR WORK PLACE CULTURE? Do you like to collaborate within a young team, and the opportunity to run with an idea? Are you passionate about informal education that scaffolds Jewish identity? Do you enjoy building relationships between people? Do you thrive when you are both a learner and a student? Do you like to be challenged and value making every moment count? At the end of the day, do you want to feel like your contribution has made a difference? If so, come work with us!
THIS IS SOME OF WHAT YOU CAN BRING. You have a post-secondary degree/diploma in Jewish education, experience with event planning within the framework of the Jewish calendar, or an equivalent combination of education and experience. Minimum 3 years’ experience supporting similar scope events, preferably in a non-profit organization and ideally within the Jewish community. You are detail oriented, collaborative, take initiative, and can handle high pressure situations and remain professional.
THIS IS YOUR PLATFORM. You identify and implement opportunities for congregants to forge relationships. Using social, ritual and educational programming, you create positive experiences for youth and young families that both serve our existing membership and encourage growth in these two key areas. You work with the Assistant Rabbi to innovate and realize annual goals of the Youth and Young Families Department. You work closely with the Program Director to support The Youth & Young Families/ Festivals Committee. You ensure objectives are met, that the committee is informed and chairs/project managers receive exceptional support during program planning and execution. You attend meetings with various stakeholders to gather information and feedback, then using your skills and creativity, identify actionable paths forward and appropriate messaging for the department. You manage the volunteer process for all events, coordinate event budgets, supervise, mentor and do whatever it takes to build a thriving youth and young families department.
HERE’S WHY IT’S SO GREAT TO WORK WITH US. You are surrounded by a friendly, inclusive, dedicated team. While weekends and some evenings are required between September and June, flexible scheduling and work-from-home are encouraged. This is an excellent opportunity to fulfill your calling and make a difference in the Jewish community.
