Adas Israel is a growing 1600 household Conservative synagogue in the heart of Washington, DC.  Gan HaYeled is an integral part of the congregation and a leading early childhood program in the DC metropolitan area.  Established in 1972, the Gan's work is rooted in middot and mitzvot, Jewish morals and values.  As an accredited NAEYC preschool, the Gan provides both full and part-day programs for 200 children in an inclusive school community where all children and families are embraced.  The Gan welcomes members of Adas Israel as well as Jewish and non-Jewish families in the greater DC region.  Its diverse and creative teachers respect and honor young children, nurturing and supporting them to reach their full potential.

Adas Israel seeks an experienced, articulate, and passionate early childhood educator to partner with the Director of Education and other clergy and faculty to create a forward thinking vision for the next chapter of the Gan.  This is a full-time position and reports to the Director of Education.
