Hebrew College, located in Newton Centre, MA, is seeking a talented person to help create and implement a new vision for the role of music. This person will build on the strengths of several of our existing programs — the School of Jewish Music, the Rabbinical School, and the Prayer Leadership Summer Institute – all of which have been wonderful sources of and outlets for musical expression. The person assuming this new role will work closely with colleagues to integrate and align these programs with each other, and to bring the flourishing of Jewish musical literacy, creativity, and spiritual depth at Hebrew College to a wider audience – one which will attract and inspire prospective rabbinical and cantorial students, as well as life-long learners and prayer leaders in the larger Jewish community.
The Associate Dean for Music will be a full-time member of the faculty, tasked with: overseeing the program for Cantorial ordination and the Rav-Hazzan program; deepening the training of interested rabbinical students and educators in sacred music and prayer leadership; spearheading the expansion of the Prayer Leadership Summer Institute; and working collaboratively with the Dean and faculty of the rabbinical school to build on Hebrew College’s strengths as a center for musical depth and innovation and the practice and leadership of prayer as a vital part of our vision for Jewish spirituality and culture in the 21st century.
