High Holidays - Junior Congregation Leader wrote on May 18, 2018 at 10:35 am:
The Hill Havurah, a non-denominational, egalitarian, and inclusive congregation in DC, is looking for a dynamic, experienced, and creative individual to lead their children's services for the High Holidays this fall -- the morning of Rosh Hashanah (just the first day) and the morning of Yom Kippur. The Havurah has its own machzor, and the leader will be encouraged to use it along with interactive singing, discussion, and more (Bibliodrama? movement?) to engage the children (one 1st through 5th-grade session and, possibly, another toddler-kindergarten session). The leader should be prepared to chant a small amount of Torah and haftarah. While the leader will be leading solo, the Havurah's rabbi will help them plan and prepare. Total compensation for both services will be $1000 -- $1300 if we add brief services for little ones -- plus a $100 travel stipend and home hospitality as needed.
