Jewish Gateways has openings for preschool, kindergarten, and 1st/2nd grade teachers for our
September-May twice-monthly learning program

Jewish Gateways, an open and diverse Jewish community in the East Bay, seeks three teachers — preschool, K, and 1st/2nd grade — for our twice-monthly family learning program.


We offer competitive pay and a creative, supportive environment. Children and parents participate, learning both together and separately, which helps create a positive atmosphere.


Called Growing Together, the program meets two Saturday mornings a month at the Jewish Community Center in Berkeley. We seek teachers who are excited about sharing Jewish traditions with children in active and varied ways. We prefer applicants with the following qualifications: 


  • Experience and comfort working with children in the age range you’re applying for

  • Basic knowledge and understanding of Jewish traditions and values 

  • Ability to plan and engage children in creative activities 

  • Desire to be part of a team building a diverse and nurturing community 

  • Capacity to work well with parents and with other staff members

Testimonials from parents:

  • "This program is family-oriented, educational, open, non-judgmental and fun.

  • "We love learning with this diverse, flexible, thoughtful community."
