URJ OLIN-SANG-RUBY UNION INSTITUTE
CALL FOR SUMMER HEBREW STAFF
Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute (OSRUI) is the premier Hebrew education camp of the Reform movement and of camping in general. Over the summer we welcome more than a thousand children to our programs and Hebrew is a substantial part of every youngster’s daily experience. Our camp counselors are the backbone of teaching Hebrew each day to our campers for some 30-45 minute sessions in order that campers can see that their counselors are an important part of the educational program as well as recreation.
In addition, however, the camp maintains a Mercaz Ivrit which is a separate facility underlining the importance of Hebrew awareness throughout the camp. Just as we have a sports center, an arts center, aquatics facilities and so much more we likewise want everyone to know that Hebrew is a central part of what we value. At this time, we are looking for staff for this Hebrew Center for the summer. These will not be camp counselors but rather experienced Hebrew teachers who can supervise our counselors and review with them all of the aspects of what they do each day in language teaching. They will be supervised by our Hebrew Center Director who has been with us for several years and are people who can work as a team within the framework that we have created.
Not only should they be experienced teachers but also individuals who can be creative and offer their own experience to our program. Our preference are those who are either American or have fluency in English to be able to train and orient our counselors. Of course, experienced Israelis or those from other countries are certainly welcome to reach out for these positions.
This job is 9 weeks long extending from the second week of June through the middle of August. We provide very good private housing with private bathrooms and are open to families with children. The camp is located in Ocnomowoc, Wisconsin located between Milwaukee and Madison. Salary range is between $3000 and $5000 for the summer depending on experience and other requirements.
