Outreach and Education

  • Director of Project Kavod/Dignity

    Jewish Family Service is currently seeking a Director of Project Kavod/Dignity to join our Outreach & Education team (18.75 hours to 37.5 hours per week).  Project Kavod is a Jewish-values education program that fills an educational leadership need at the agency supported by the expertise of other JFS staff as appropriate. The person in this role is also a key connector developing relationships within the local Jewish community.  This position will be working remotely to start and then will be located in the Seattle office on Capitol Hill.

    This person will examine and articulate ways in which the “J” is lived at JFS. This is done in with a focus on presenting Jewish teachings that:

    • Explore the meaning of service with dignity/Kavod as a key Jewish value
    • Address the social and emotional challenges JFS clients face and members of the Jewish community struggle with every day
    • Provide guidance so action on behalf of others comes from a place of knowledge and humility regarding the larger social issues facing JFS clients and the community as a whole

     
    The ideal candidate will:

    • See texts and Jewish tradition as complex. The educator cannot be dogmatic about Jewish teachings. The goal of Project Kavod is to open the heart, not “teach the answer.” The “right” way to respond varies, depending on the person. The concept of “kavod” is complex and often elusive. Jewish teachings of this nature are meant to show the difficulty of understanding the meaning of what it means to be human, not to simplify it. This position is about nuance not ideology. This is crucial, as this person and the teachings must reach people of different backgrounds, including a wide variety of people both within and outside of the Jewish community.
    • Be comfortable with Jewish texts that speak to the issues related to the work of JFS. This person is called upon by JFS stakeholders as well as other community Jewish professionals and Rabbis for help finding and understanding these texts.
    • Understand that distinctions between “clients” and others (staff, board, volunteers, and community) are misleading. There is a deep interconnection between all JFS stakeholders. The relationships are porous. Nobody falls neatly into one “category.” By articulating this point clearly and consistently, walls break down and everyone benefits.
    • Develop relationships with a broad range of stakeholders. People come to classes, read educational pieces, etc. if they trust, value and have a relationship with the teacher.
    • Be patient. Creating relationships and trust takes time. Embedding Jewish education in an institution that is newer to Jewish education is a huge cultural shift. The shift must continue gently, a drip at a time, primarily through education resulting from relationships.

     
    ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:

    • Develop and teach classes, both in-person and virtual, for the community on topics related to the work of JFS. Strategize calendar, plan teaching and create source sheets and other collateral as needed.
    • Integrate teachings into volunteer programs both in-person and in print collateral. Support volunteer events by leading the discussion about Jewish values. Draft collateral that is included in reflective worksheets for volunteers participating in programming.
    • Infuse teachings into outreach efforts through speaking opportunities, providing materials, and helping teams with outreach materials, as requested.
    • Support JFS staff:
      • Individuals: be available both for personal spiritual issues and for guidance for staff as they work with clients.
      • JFS Teams: provide staff trainings as requested and create resource materials as requested.
      • All-staff: connect the work of JFS to the “Jewish history and values guide our work” via emails for Jewish holidays and other Jewish events, teachings at all-staff meetings and teachings at opt-in classes.
      • JFS staff leadership: be available to leadership during moments of crisis to help think about how to respond in ways that will support the staff and the community.
    • Support the JFS board by helping them examine the “J” in JFS. Meet with board members to guide discussions regarding decision-making, by providing a Jewish context.
    • Consult and/or lead within JFS in preserving the Jewish nature of JFS. This could include a variety of ways, including things such as helping with interviews, participating in on-boarding new people or leading Jewish holiday celebrations.

     
    QUALIFICATIONS:

    • Knowledge of Jewish history, texts, teachings and familiarity with Jewish community and culture required.
    • Excellent relationship builder with ability to collaborate with a wide range of people including clients, community members, organizational partners, JFS supporters and staff.
    • Proven facilitation skills, including knowledge of relevant tools and processes.
    • Ability to work independently with demonstrated initiative and problem-solving skills.
    • Strong reflective and critical thinking abilities.
    • Skilled at creating safe, inclusive and welcoming spaces for people from diverse backgrounds and experiences.
    • Ability to creatively engage a variety of audiences through programs, classes and discussions.
    • Attention to detail and excellent organizational, written and communication skills.
    •  Working knowledge of personal computers including demonstrated proficiency in Microsoft Office, Word and Excel.
    • Experience with Raiser’s Edge or other database systems is a plus.
