Hillel maintains a job file of local job openings for Hebrew School Teachers, Youth Group Advisers and other similar jobs. Below you will find a list of current openings.


Executive Assistant/Development Associate

Young Advocates for Fair Education (Yaffed) is hiring an Executive Assistant to work out of our New York City office. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Yaffed is a young organization and the right candidate will have the opportunity to grow with the organization.

Yaffed’s mission is to improve secular education in Hasidic and ultra-Orthodox Yeshivas that are not meeting state standards. Currently, tens of thousands of students attending these Yeshivas in New York are being denied a basic education in subjects such as social studies and science. Most high school students attending these Yeshivas receive no secular education at all.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Please submit a resume, cover letter and writing sample (examples can include op-eds, blog posts, grant proposals, marketing materials or a research paper you’ve written) to [email protected]. Only applications containing all required materials will be reviewed.
