YOUTH DIRECTOR

THE NORTH SHORE SYNAGOGUE

The North Shore Synagogue is seeking a Youth Director to be the face and voice for youth and teen programming at the synagogue for ages three through to teenage years. 

The synagogue is over 80 years old and was the first Orthodox Jewish community established on Sydney’s leafy North Shore.

Working in close coordination with the Rabbi, the Youth Director will have responsibility to maximise participation and the ongoing engagement of our youth and their families, with a primary focus on Shabbat and Festivals, with an expectation that the role will require proactive engagement outside of these times.

The Youth Director must be a skilled relationship-builder, able to engage and connect with children, youth, and parents, be dynamic and energetic with a warm personality and have a commitment to Orthodox Jewish life.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Proven success leading a youth program in a synagogue or similar, including accountability for developing and delivering programs on their own initiative.

  • Experience in teaching and informal education.

  • Torah knowledge sufficient to deliver youth programs within an Orthodox synagogue

  • Excellent written and verbal English communication skills

  • Strong leadership skills, dynamism, enthusiasm, and charisma

  • Capacity to act as a role model by engaging with youth in a manner that is professional and consistent with Jewish values

  • Excellent organizational skills
