I first came to PSJC in college and, after graduating, I was able to arrange my work schedule so I could work full-time AND teach. PSJC is a place where Jewish experience is as important as Jewish learning and the individuality of students and teachers is recognized and honored. I spent 7 years working with the amazing students, families, and faculty at PSJC and it was always far and away the highlight of my week (even on a Sunday morning!). Imagine parents sending their students to Hebrew school wanting them to learn, question, and love Judaism. Imagine 10-year-old students who ask you the most profound Talmudic questions you've ever heard. Imagine a principal, a rabbi, and a cohort of teachers who awe you on a regular basis with their creativity, energy, and patience. Imagine a closet full of Model Magic and enough dry erase markers for every classroom! If I could take them all with me on my move cross-country, I would.

Teaching Hebrew school at PSJC is a way to be meaningfully involved with Jewish community, to get to know and build connections with generations coming after me, and to stretch my own Jewish learning and keep growing. It is great getting to know the students and fellow staff, and being part of the larger hopeful and compelling project of building a Jewish future.

I had a fabulous experience teaching Hebrew School at PSJC during my time as an HUC-JIR student.  The school's leadership emphasizes thinking creatively about how to create meaningful Jewish experiences and learning across the age spectrum. A great balance of support and freedom for teachers combined with a warm atmosphere for all.  Students learn and have fun- the teachers do to! I highly recommend teaching at PSJC.
