Kulanu Assistant Position

Job Description

Kulanu is the supplementary religious educational program for K-7 students at the Orangetown Jewish Center (OJC). Under normal circumstances, we meet 4:15-6:15 Tuesdays and Thursdays, but are planning to meet from 4:30-5:30 virtually this fall with some small in-person programs at other times. The Kulanu Assistant position is a part-time position (approximately 9 hours/week). The assistant works closely with the director to publicize events, send out weekly parent communication and help with logistics to enable the program run smoothly.

Knowledge Skills and Abilities

Strong computer skills (particularly Constant Contact, Zoom, Google Sheets and Docs), ability to be welcoming and helpful to parents and children at Kulanu, willingness to work from home on minor computer tasks, and ability to work collaboratively with the director, faculty and aides to help run the program effectively. We are seeking an organized, self-starter who can work independently on assigned tasks. While we are virtual (for at least the first ½ of the year), the director will need help planning and running any pop-up in-person events and help with the technical side of classes.
