We are a warm and welcoming community, and our 600 membership units include all kinds of people and families.

Our inclusive attitude is reflected through Genesis, the unique interfaith partnership with St. Clare of Assisi Episcopal Church, through which we co-own our building. This relationship allows us to use our building more efficiently, while demonstrating a deep commitment to pluralism, dialog, and working together across differences. Since we have Genesis, our Executive Director does not need to directly supervise day-to-day management of the building and grounds, but instead works with the Genesis building manager and coordinates scheduling with our neighbors at St. Clare to ensure that TBE’s facilities needs are met.

The Executive Director reports directly to the Temple Board of Trustees and is also accountable to our Senior Rabbi. The Executive Director is the most senior, non-clergy employee of the synagogue, and, as such, must embrace and engage in community outreach while providing outstanding service and support to the TBE membership. We’re looking for an Executive Director who is audaciously welcoming: Someone warm and friendly, who makes newcomers and long-time members smile, makes them feel like valued participants each time they show up, and communicates genuine interest in getting to know them. To us, welcoming also includes an open embrace of a diverse community with all kinds of people.

We also seek an Executive Director who will be a thoughtful and creative partner with our Senior Rabbi and each member of the senior staff and who is never satisfied and constantly looking for new ways to improve the operations, experience, and community of TBE.

· Motivate, mentor and supervise five administrative staff. Create an environment of empowerment and transfer of new skills.
· Provide resources for the continued growth and development of staff.
Membership Relations and Communications
· Lead all aspects of the member engagement life cycle, including recruiting and welcoming prospective members, managing the annual membership renewal process, maintaining membership records, and confidentially resolving members’ concerns and issues.
· Partner with the Membership Committee to create new and innovative recruitment and welcoming opportunities for new members, as well as engagement strategies for continuing members.
· Act as Editor-in-Chief for monthly bulletin, website, and other communications.

Program Support
· Coordinate scheduling for TBE’s use of the building and act as TBE’s main liaison with the Genesis building manager.
· Work with Genesis on operational, facilities, maintenance, and support activities to ensure the successful delivery of all synagogue programs and worship experience.
· Work with contractors and other facilities coordinators for High Holy Days services at offsite location.

QUALIFICATIONS:

The successful candidate will possess the skills and personality to manage a complex organization with qualifications that include:

Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah

two positions

Brooklyn, NY

Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah (LKFLT) works to help Jews and fellow travelers apply Jewish wisdom to live better lives and shape a better world. In growing numbers, Jews and others who are exploring both traditional and new ways to engage with Jewish teachings and practices are drawing on these experiences and sensibilities to shape their thinking and behaviors. LKFLT supports the professionals and organizations leading this work through grantmaking, convenings and network building, thought leadership, and strategic communications. As part of this four-pronged strategy, LKFLT runs the Lippman Kanfer Prize for Applied Jewish Wisdom, and publishes and supports research on applied Jewish wisdom in the field. For additional information, see the Foundation’s website: www.lippmankanfer.org.

In its fourth year as an independent foundation, LKFLT is working both to refine its strategic approach and targeted outcomes and to build its organizational infrastructure and systems to ensure efficient and effective operations over the long term. LKFLT has a sister foundation—Lippman Kanfer Family Foundation (LKFF)—which is dedicated to building and sustaining a multi-generational family culture of tzedakah (philanthropy) through thematic issue-based grantmaking and support of the vitality of Jewish communities where Kanfer family members live, especially in their hometown of Akron, Ohio.

WRSMC is staffed by finance and accounting professionals who support the foundations in those areas.

Program Director

The Program Director will lead LKFLT’s work to broaden and deepen the field of applied Jewish wisdom, with a focus on strengthening collaboration among organizations engaged in this work. Initially, the Program Director will focus primarily on designing and facilitating convenings among grantees and other partner organizations, overseeing the Lippman Kanfer Prize for Applied Jewish Wisdom [‘the Prize’], and supporting foundation special projects, including its current initiative to bolster American Jewish engagement in democracy and the public sphere. Across all of this work, the Program Director will stay abreast of—and contribute to—the evolving zeitgeist of the Jewish education sector and other fields in which Jewish wisdom plays (or could play) a role. Over time, the role will change as the foundation’s field-building strategy evolves. This position is based either in Brooklyn, New York or in Akron, Ohio; reports to the President; and is a full-time exempt position.

Requirements:

Credentials and Experience
• Bachelor’s degree or equivalent.
• 7+ years of professional experience, preferably with philanthropic foundations and/or social-impact organizations.
• Strong foundation in Jewish text and tradition with a commitment to pluralism.
• Expertise in experience design.
• Significant experience and expertise in education – particularly adult Jewish education – a plus.
• A good sense of humor.
• Willingness to travel domestically approximately six to nine times annually.

Knowledge and Skills

• Strong interpersonal, team-building, negotiating, and organizing skills. Ability to collaborate and build partnerships around common interests and goals.
• Skill in process-level thinking (i.e., ability to optimize systems and resources and anticipate critical next steps).
• Demonstrated excellence with public speaking, group facilitation, and/or teaching required.
• Track record of demonstrating sound judgment (e.g. by making appropriate decisions, anticipating problems and innovating creative solutions), managing complex situations with discretion and tact, and prioritizing and completing tasks in a skillful and timely fashion.
• Working knowledge of Microsoft Office 365 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneDrive), and other productivity software.
• Experience with field/network-building.
• Capacity to develop productive relationships with grantees, peer funders, board members, staff team members.

Director of Learning and Strategic Communications

The Director of Learning and Strategic Communications will lead LKFLT’s efforts to learn from its work and apply that learning both (1) to support continuous programmatic and operational improvement in the foundation’s work, and (2) to promote LKFLT’s mission by synthesizing and disseminating actionable knowledge in the fields in which the foundation operates. The Director will need to span and integrate expertise across two distinct-yet-complementary fields: learning, with its focus on research, evaluation, and interpretation; and strategic communications, with its focus on the development and dissemination of audience-specific products designed to inform and influence (e.g. reports, infographics, social media, etc.). This position is based either in Brooklyn, New York or in Akron, Ohio; reports to the LKFLT President; and is a full-time, exempt position.

Requirements:

Credentials and Experience
• Graduate degree or equivalent.
• 10+ years of professional experience, including work with philanthropic foundations and / or social-impact organizations.
• Significant experience and expertise in education – particularly adult Jewish education – a plus.
• Strong foundation in Jewish text and tradition with a commitment to Jewish pluralism.

• Expertise in evidence-based and action-oriented research and /or evaluation.
• Robust emotional intelligence and capacity to effectively facilitate diverse groups to make meaning from complex information.

• Experience in utilizing a range of communications tools (e.g. traditional and social media; webinars; research reports; public speaking; etc.) to share knowledge and exercise influence.
• Working knowledge of Microsoft Office 365 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneDrive), and other productivity software.
• Capacity to develop productive relationships with grantees, peer funders, board members, staff team members.
