Director of Jewish Experience

Administrator / Full-Time

MetroWest Jewish Day School, Framingham, MA

MetroWest Jewish Day School (MWJDS) is a vibrant and innovative PK-8 pluralistic Jewish day school that nurtures students and challenges them to reach their potential on their journeys of learning and discovery. Nestled among the woods in Framingham, Massachusetts, MWJDS customizes an individualized approach to optimize each student’s learning, balancing the levels of support and challenge they need to thrive according to their academic and emotional profile. Here, people of all Jewish observances learn and grow in an environment of academic excellence and mutual respect. Our low student-to-teacher ratio enables us to fulfill our commitment to “educating children according to their path” (Proverbs), and we firmly hold that all good education is differentiated education because all learners are unique.

Our nearly 50 students range from grades PK-8, and our intentionally small classes tend to have between 5-10 students each. We welcome people of all Jewish backgrounds and practices, and our families come to us from as far east as Brookline, and as far west as Worcester. We are known for our individualized pedagogical approach that supports and challenges each child. We emphasize individual problem solving, creativity, discovery, and paths of learning in both general and Judaic subject areas.

We are seeking a passionate, creative, and experienced Jewish educator to be our next Director of Jewish Experience.


What you will do

You will serve as our lead Jewish Educator, promoting Jewish life and learning throughout the school community and serving as a role model for living a Jewish life. In addition you will:

Promote a positive Jewish experience  Your oversight of our Jewish education and Jewish experiences will foster a love for Jewish life within our community.

Together you will collaborate on school-wide Jewish holiday celebrations and determine effective ways to integrate Jewish learning into secular studies, as appropriate.

Be an ambassador for the school  Engaging in outreach, you will represent us to local community organizations and leaders and establish collaborations that will enhance the school and our broader community. You will also assist the Head of School in creating family education programming.

Judaics classroom teacher  You will use your curriculum and instruction skills as the primary Judaics teacher for the lower grades, and when you do some teaching in the upper grades as well.

Ritual Leader  You get to show off your creative programming and fresh approach to Jewish ritual practice when you conduct our daily Tefillah and weekly Kabbalat Shabbat services.
