The Rashi School seeks a Parental Leave Part-Time Middle School Israel Educator from August 22, 2022 to November 22, 2022. This position is approximately 10 hours per week.

The Rashi School is the Boston-area K-8 Reform Jewish independent school. In our warm and inclusive community, children are appreciated for who they are as they learn and develop their identities. With the school’s foundation of rigorous academics and differentiated instruction and a mission rooted in social justice, we want our students to ask the tough questions—not just the who, what, where, but the how, why, and what can I do to fix it? Rashi graduates have the confidence to try new things and to fail forward. With kindness at their core, they become change agents in the school and beyond.

The Rashi School strives to facilitate a deep love of and connection to Israel in our students through challenging and engaging learning. Our graduates possess a mature and critical understanding of the past, present, and future of Israel.
