engaging and interactive sessions with song, ruach, and kavannah. Please note that we love to sing, though it is our

and 2nd - 4th grades. On Yom Kippur morning, this person will also engage approximately 50 families in a
meaningful and age-appropriate exploration of holiday themes.
We hope that our prayer leader will:
- Incorporate interactive elements that involve and captivate children throughout the prayer sessions (e.g.
movement, singing, etc.)
- Create an inclusive and welcoming environment that encourages children to actively participate in the
prayer experience.
- Provide explanations and insights into the significance of the High Holidays in a manner accessible to and
age-appropriate for children.
Qualifications:
- Energetic and vibrant personality with the ability to captivate and maintain the attention of children.
- Familiarity with Jewish prayer, traditions, and melodies especially those related to the High Holidays.
- Strong communication and interpersonal skills, ensuring effective engagement with both children and their
families.
- Ability to lead a prayer service with enthusiasm, creativity, and a sense of joy, without use of musical
instruments
- While previous experience is beneficial, a passion for working with children and fostering a love for Jewish
traditions is the most important qualification.
Time Commitment: This is a part-time position specifically for the mornings of Rosh Hashanah (October 3 & 4)
and Yom Kippur (October 12). Additional time will be required for planning and coordination. If needed, Ohr
Kodesh can also provide home hospitality for the holidays/Shabbat for you and your family if applicable.
Compensation: $3,500
How to Apply: Interested candidates should submit a resume and a brief cover letter detailing their experience with
Jewish prayer and working with children. Please include any relevant experiences or ideas for creating an engaging
and educational High Holidays prayer sessions for children.
