We are also always looking to increase our database of substitutes, so if you are interested in a less regular commitment, but would like to join our team, please let us know.

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!).If I could take them all with me on my move cross-country, I would.

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.

Lisa (Rabbinical Student, now Rabbi)


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.
