Congregation Shaarey Zedek – a dynamic Conservative synagogue in suburban Detroit – is seeking a high-energy, joyful _t’filah _leader and educator to innovate and help conduct our weekly Shabbat morning youth services:

  • Junior Congregation
  • Shabbat and Me

These are working titles and the leader hired can help to shape them, as well as the services themselves.

Junior Congregation will be a weekly Shabbat morning experience of liturgy and learning for children in elementary school. The Shabbat Youth Service Leader must possess the ability to lead the core Shabbat morning prayers and a desire to teach children to lead.

Shabbat and Me, a separate program, will be a weekly Shabbat morning experience of music and movement, prayer and play, for children ages 2-6. The Shabbat Youth Service Leader must be kind and compassionate, with experience working with preschool-age children.

This Shabbat Youth Service Leader will be willing to work collaboratively with the Shaarey Zedek clergy team and the synagogue’s Director of Youth & Family Learning to blend prayer with other interactive learning activities. They must be available Saturday mornings from 10am-12noon throughout the year.

A successful Leader will have experience leading such youth services and will have musical and tefilah ability and knowledge.

Congregation Shaarey Zedek is an equal opportunity employer.
