About Temple Beth Zion
TBZ is a non-denominational Jewish congregation located in Brookline Massachusetts, an exciting hub of Jewish life. We are a community of seekers who do not necessarily fit into neat categories of Judaism. Our open-minded and thoughtful community includes members of all ages and backgrounds, with sizable cohorts of dedicated young families and retirees. 360 households come from cities and towns throughout the metropolitan Boston area. Our Beit Rabban program currently has 60 children enrolled in grades K-7. As a vibrant and growing community, TBZ is excited to expand our current part-time educational leadership to a full-time dedicated position of Director of Congregational Learning and Programming. The Director of Congregational Learning and Programming will work under the supervision of Rabbi Claudia Kreiman.
About Brookline, MA:
Temple Beth Zion is located on historic Beacon Street in Brookline, Massachusetts, within five miles of downtown Boston to the East, and Harvard Square to the North. First settled in 1635, Brookline’s proximity to Boston and easy access to public transportation gives it a lively urban feel, while maintaining a more relaxed atmosphere, communal feeling and open spaces. Brookline has a nationally regarded public school system, as well as options for day care, Jewish and general pre-schools, and access to day school education in neighboring areas. Its population is diverse and multi-generational.
The town boasts both casual and upscale bars and restaurants, many coffee shops, a multi-branch library system and beautiful park spaces, including the Emerald Necklace designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. Brookline is home to a vibrant Jewish community with kosher restaurants and a kosher butcher, as well as over a dozen Jewish synagogues and temples. Our congregation is snug between two main shopping districts, Washington Square and Coolidge Corner, and within easy walking distance of both. Highlights of the area include a large independent bookstore, an independent movie theatre, several grocery stores and pharmacies. And we are less than 3 miles away from Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox!
