Teacher

The teacher shaliach generally teaches one or more subjects in the field of Hebrew Studies, Jewish Studies or “Religious Studies”, or as otherwise categorized by each educational institution. This field includes the following subjects: Hebrew, Bible, Talmud, Jewish History, Israel Studies, Tradition, Prayer and Hebrew Literature. Israel Studies is a subject whose purpose is to strengthen the connection between the Diaspora communities and the State of Israel. The teacher shaliach is something of an “Israel ambassador” in the school and a role model for his students. He is highly conscious of Jewish and Zionist issues, fluent in current events, lives the issues of the times, speaks “fresh” Hebrew and is fluent in Israeli culture. These and other qualities provide the teacher shaliach with the tools and the ability to be a fresh and vibrant focal point in any Jewish school in the Diaspora.

 

A candidate for a religious school will himself be religious. The candidate will be directed to the school based on the school’s requirements for a particular grade and his relevant teaching experience in that grade. The administrations of the Jewish schools request teacher couples with appropriate education in Hebrew and Jewish Studies, or, alternatively, single teachers who fulfill the professional requirements.
