Established Jewish Community Day School Seeks Head of School
Friedel Jewish Academy -- a growing Jewish community day school celebrating its 50th year -- seeks an impassioned Head of School to take us to the next level. You must be a confident leader who inspires our exceptional teachers and attracts and retains our families, an enthusiastic Jewish educator whom students regard as approachable and caring, and a collaborator who works well with multiple constituencies: parents, teachers, Board of Directors, donors, Federation, area synagogues, and the general Jewish community. Friedel is a K-6 elementary school in Omaha, Nebraska, fully accredited by the state, and employs the TaL AM Hebrew & Heritage Curriculum. Our students love to learn and consistently rank in top percentiles in reading and math. Programming includes a science fair, band, orchestra, drama, swimming, and an unparalleled fine arts program. Friedel has consistently produced award-winning students, including the current State Speech Contest Champion, a fifth grader! These are exciting times. Friedel has grown from 18 to 50 students in the past ten years. We recently expanded our building to include a larger commons, new classrooms, and new offices, and feel certain we have the potential and resources to continue our growth. Omaha is a city of opportunity and prosperity. Everyday living is affordable and convenient. We consistently rank at the top of national surveys for “quality of life” (as our many East and West Coast transplants can attest). The Omaha Jewish community is exceptional (jewishomaha.org) -- warm, welcoming, solid and supportive -- offering a wealth of resources -- financial, religious, cultural and recreational. For the right leader, this is a creative, rewarding, enjoyable career opportunity. See for yourself.
