The Leffell School is a dynamic, cutting-edge K-12 independent Jewish school serving approximately 820 students on two campuses in Westchester County, 30 minutes north of New York City. We emphasize academic excellence, traditional Jewish learning and values, and a strong sense of community.
We are seeking a Talmud and Judaic Studies teacher for our High School, located in Hartsdale, NY. The ideal candidate will be a collaborative colleague who is capable of creating dynamic and active lessons that engage students in content, while teaching critical skills for text learning, and engendering a love of Judaism in the process. He or she will have mastery in teaching Mishnah, Talmud, and Limudei Kodesh more broadly in a high school setting, paired with an evidence-based, backwards design approach to teaching and learning. We seek to ground our students in rigorous study of Talmud, to engender a love of Talmud Torah, and to help our students develop the skills to support lifelong learning.
Qualifications: Experience teaching Talmud and Judaic Studies in a formal classroom setting is required. Experience teaching high school students and experience teaching Tanakh will be helpful. Competitive compensation commensurate with experience.
