Job Description

Machar, the Washington Congregation for Secular Humanistic Judaism is inviting applications for the position of part-time rabbi or leader

Machar is a growing, very diverse community with members from throughout the Washington, D.C. area, a vital Sunday School, stimulating adult education programs, spirited secular holiday observances, and a strong commitment to social action. We are looking for a rabbi or leader committed to the principles of Secular Humanistic Judaism.

The successful applicant would serve our community as pastor/counselor, ceremonial leader, educator/scholar (adults and children), and community spokesperson.

The position includes the following activities:

– leading and making presentations at Machar’s holiday celebrations; – participating in Machar’s adult education and other programming; – providing pastoral services for members; – assisting Machar with membership outreach and connecting with prospective and new members; – assisting students in preparing b’nei mitzvah projects and presiding at the group ceremonies; – participating in revision of liturgy for selected holidays, as needed; – providing services in support of Machar’s Jewish Cultural School including occasional classroom visits and advising on curriculum revision; – assisting with some of the activities of Machar’s post-b’nei mitzvah group; – representing Machar as appropriate in the wider Jewish and Humanist communities.

While we prefer an ordained rabbi for this position, others will be seriously considered based on abilities, education, and experience.
