Put yourself at the intersection of LGBTQ rights, Jewish identity and the broader movement for social justice in American society. Keshet seeks a dynamic and experienced professional to join a phenomenal team. The National Director of Education and Training leads Keshet’s largest program area to equip Jewish leaders across the country to make concrete, sustainable change toward full LGBTQ equality in their institutions and communities.
The National Director of Education and Training oversees all aspects of Keshet’s education and training department, including Keshet’s signature institutional change program, the year-long Leadership Project, as well as other training, consultation, online learning, and educational resource creation efforts.
The National Director of Education and Training reports to the Chief Program Officer and manages a team of five staff based in the Bay Area, Chicago, New York City, Minneapolis, and Western Massachusetts. We will consider candidates located anywhere in the country.
Keshet works for the full equality of all LGBTQ Jews and our families in Jewish life. We turn values at the heart of Judaism—equality, inclusion, and human dignity—into action in Jewish communities because when we stand by and allow LGBTQ Jews to be excluded, we hold all of Jewish life back from reaching its full potential. We equip Jewish organizations with the tools to build LGBTQ-affirming communities, create spaces for queer Jewish teens to feel valued as queer and Jewish, and mobilize the Jewish community to fight for LGBTQ justice nationwide.
As an organization that teaches the importance of proactive LGBTQ inclusive messages and actions, Keshet recognizes the similar need to make our commitment to racial equity and justice clear and explicit. We commit to embed a racial equity and justice lens into Keshet’s leadership and staff structure, political analysis, organizational policies, communications, and program content.
Keshet’s national office is in Boston with offices in San Francisco and New York as well.
Salary range is $75,000-85,000/year, commensurate with experience.
Keshet offers a competitive benefits package, and a fast paced, purpose-driven, and fun work environment.
Please send resume and a thoughtful cover letter via email to email@example.com and include “Director of Education” in subject line.
Keshet values diversity, including racial and ethnic diversity. In your cover letter, please share with us any aspects of your identity and experience that you feel help prepare you to work effectively in Jewish communities that are diverse in race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, class, ability, and more. We encourage trans, non-binary, and people of color to apply.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until we find the right candidate for the position.
