Havrutah Course Instructor (Contract)
Pluralistic Rabbinical Seminary is seeking Jewish educators to provide one-on-one education to our rabbinical smicha program through our “Havrutah Course” format.
Subject areas we’re seeking instructors to assist are students with include:
- American Jewish Literature
- Modern Hebrew Literature and Poetry
- Prayer in Rabbinic Literature
- Genesis Rabbah
- Jewish Bioethics
Educators are welcome to design these one-on-one courses in a way that they best feel provides a high quality learning experience. These can be courses you teach already, or courses you develop specifically for this format. Compensation is based entirely on what you would like to charge per course. Our students will work with you and we will provide credit to them for that work.
We welcome the opportunity to have a single instructor create multiple courses; however, we encourage instructors to focus on those courses about which they are most interested and passionate.
We believe in academic freedom and will not place any mandates on what is taught or not in your course.
Our educators span the religious spectrum and we appreciate the diversity of voices we provide to our students. We are especially seeking those educators who can translate complex subjects and materials into practical, useful skills our students will need.
While we actively recruit rabbis, cantors, and Jewish studies professors, we are open to those with nontraditional backgrounds who can show that their educational and work experience translates into higher education.
Persons interested in developing courses for PRS as Course Instructors should send a resume and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please put “Havrutah Course Instructor” in the subject line.
