New Synagogue Project Kollel, our Kindergarten through 7th grade kids’ education program, is hiring educators for the 2023-2024 school year!
The New Synagogue Project (“NSP”) is a synagogue founded in 2018 and located in the Petworth neighborhood of DC. Our mission is to build a spiritually vibrant, radically inclusive Jewish community that reflects our vision for a world of justice, equity, and liberation. Our community is being built by and for religious, secular, and atheist Jews, families with kids, partnered and single people, queer and trans people, disabled and chronically ill people, D/deaf and hard of hearing folks, interfaith families, Jews of color and white Jews, and anyone interested in exploring and experiencing Jewish life.
You can read more about NSP at newsynagogueproject.org.
