Teen Network Weaver - Temple Israel, West Bloomfield, Michigan The Position: We believe that as Jews, our relationships are central to building identity, strong connections to community, and a positive lifelong affiliation to synagogue life. As a thriving, innovative center of Judaism, we seek to implement a vision that meets the needs of our teens and families, that connects our youth to our temple and clergy, and that draws in the engaged and unengaged though personal relationships. We are seeking a dynamic youth professional who is ready to meet these opportunities with energy and excitement. The Organization: Temple Israel is a Reform congregation unlike any other. Located in West Bloomfield, Michigan, Temple Israel is the largest congregation in the country with over 3600 member families. Our flourishing youth program is a source of pride, as are our incredible worship experiences, innovative vision, and our commitment to relational Judaism. The Background: Engaging and inspiring the next generation of Detroit Jews is essential to maintaining a strong and vibrant community. With the potential for many more involved teens in the Detroit Jewish community, it is challenging to develop meaningful relationships with each of them and facilitate their connections to each other. Yet, this is the call that we must answer in order to retain them as lifelong Jewish adults. This generation of teens, the Millenials, is different than their parents’ generation, and therefore requires a different approach. In the past, the synagogue has been the center of the Jewish community, serving as the social, spiritual, and educational focal point for Jewish families. Today, teens are overwhelmed with their academic workload and extracurricular activities, which often leave very little time for anything else. They are also fiercely individualistic, and do not feel an obligation toward synagogue life in the same way as their parents and grandparents. Teens are focused on living up to their limitless potential, they are creative, thoughtful and driven, and it is up to us to harness their passions for the good of our Jewish community. They are searching for meaning in the form of exceptional, accessible, personal experiences. Where previous generations turned inward toward the synagogue for connection and community, we must turn outward to reach these teens, providing increasingly engaging niche programming and quality personal relationships in order to meet their needs. Our teens are involved in many different aspects of Jewish communal life through a variety of organizations, and it is our responsibility to encourage their commitment to these causes. If we do not meet teens where they are, then the good work that they do and the connections they form will separate them from their rabbis and role models at Temple Israel. If we are involved, present, and supportive, we strengthen their Jewish identity and their relationships with our synagogue. Teen Network Weaver (TNW) Position: The TNW will have experience in community organizing, camp, youth group experience, or other youth work. The TNW will be Jewishly literate, with strong organizational and programming skills. The TNW will have an active, leadership presence in all teen engagement programs related to Temple Israel: high school religious school programs, middle school and high school youth group meetings and events, retreats and overnights, leadership training, and anything else teen-related. The TNW will meet teens where they are, maintaining an active presence in the greater Metro Detroit Jewish community (ex: BBYO, Friendship Circle, Jewish student organizations, AIPAC, JServe, Repair the World, Summer in the City, local camps). • Meeting teens where they are will also mean attending high school sporting events, school plays, dance recitals, graduations, and summer camps in order to form lasting relationships with teens who may be meaningfully involved in hobbies and interests outside of the Jewish community. • The TNW will also be responsible for connecting with teens who may not be involved in Jewish communal life, and drawing them into the community through one-on-one connections. • TNW will be a ‘pied piper’ of teens, skilled in social media and up to date on Millennial ideology and pop culture. This person will strive to know and engage every teen connected to Temple Israel in any way. • The TNW will also be responsible for staffing NFTY events, supporting their teen leaders, and serving as a resource for the region.
