Job Description

Come join a superb faculty in a congregation that is serious about Jewish education! 


Temple Beth Shalom is a growing Reform congregation in Austin with a tradition of excellence and innovation, which supports a Religious School with almost 400 students. We are looking for creative, knowledgeable, and experienced teachers to help bring our vision alive. We have a dynamic religious school that includes an established education program for grades K-12 and fun and interactive elective courses for students in grades 3-12. 


Temple Beth Shalom is a learning community based on a partnership between professionals and our congregants, as well as congregants in cooperation with one another. This partnership leads to all learners as active contributors to their Jewish development while encouraging increased participation in the learning process. Our learners are as young as infants and they remain with us throughout their lives. We believe that learning the skills for living a Jewish life is an essential component of Religious/Hebrew education. By learning the values embedded in Shabbat, holidays, communal religious events and home based rituals, as well as the skills needed to celebrate them, our children will develop into Jewish adults ready to make informed choices about their lives. Jewish living often occurs outside of the boundaries of “Jewish time,” therefore we provide our students with values-based learning that transcends their lives. As a Reform community we believe in informed choice through knowledge, therefore we regard Jewish learning as essential, beginning at an early age. Living a Jewish life becomes relevant and meaningful when we understand the choices we are making on a daily basis and those choices become Jewish choices.
