Darshan Yeshiva, a distance learning based conversion to Judaism program with Orthodox, Conservative, Reform and Jewish Renewal rabbis or cantors, is seeking a rabbi based in Western USA for a role as a conversion to Judaism mentor.
Rabbis/cantors work with students via distance learning remotely or in-person with no travel required. After students finish their conversion education, rabbis provide the bet din and mikvah, facilitating their conversion. Brit milah is facilitated elsewhere.
Our mentors are paid on a per-student, per month basis. They are able to set their own rates based on how many students they wish to take. They are only paid to be mentors to students; there are no meetings to attend, no boards, presidents, donors, etc. This is a great opportunity for a rabbi or cantor seeking additional income at any stage in their career.
Our ideal candidate will be located somewhere in Western USA. We are NOT currently seeking rabbis or cantors in California, Oregon or Washington State.
