Job opening: Music & Arts teacher/Early childhood specialist

For the 2018-19 school year, we’re seeking a dynamic, collaborative teacher with early childhood expertise who is interested in being part of a politically-engaged, multi-racial, multi-generational Jewish community. Knowledge of Yiddish is a plus but not required.

For the first period of each class day, the Music & Arts teacher/Early Childhood Specialist will lead our group for children 2-4, integrating song, play, stories, hands-on arts, Yiddish language, and Jewish holiday learning.

The teacher will also lead Music & Arts classes for older children and participate as a leader in community celebrations and events.

Music & Arts classes weave together Jewish cultural expressions from many times and places. They link into the holidays we celebrate at shule (which include Jewish holidays, MLK Day, and May Day) and students’ learning in their core/social justice classes.

Depending on the background of the teacher and interests of students, Music & Arts class may include song, instrumental music, food, dance, and visual arts.

Pay is $225 per session. To apply, please send a letter of inquiry and resume to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

The Midtown Workmen’s Circle School is a secular Jewish Sunday School and community that brings together Jewish cultural heritage and social justice activism. We meet on Sundays from 10:00-1:00 PM at the headquarters of the Workmen’s Circle at 247 West 37th St in Midtown Manhattan. Students rotate through three classes: Core/social justice, Yiddish language, and Music & Arts. Teachers bring an array of talents, passions and experiences and function as inspirations, models, and mentors for our students over the course of their years at shule (Yiddish word for school).
