The Institute for Jewish Spirituality (IJS) teaches Jewish spiritual practices that are grounded in mindfulness to people who are seeking a deeper, richer and more meaningful life experience. IJS began in 1999 in response to the observation among some Jewish leaders that there were a growing number of Buddhist teachers in the United States from Jewish ancestries and backgrounds and many students of theirs who were also Jewish. IJS teaches the core practices of mindfulness meditation, Torah study, prayer, tikkun middot (the development of ethical character traits), chant and yoga as embodied practices. These practices provide participants with valuable skills for effective leadership while creating opportunities for them to deepen their inner lives and connect meaningfully with the Divine.

Reporting directly to and partnering with the Executive Director, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) will manage and grow a robust team in finance, marketing, and digital content production, and indirectly support the entire staff. In addition to designing and maintaining effective systems, the COO will help maintain the mindful and spiritual core of IJS’ culture through a regular spiritual practice of their own as well as an openness to deepening their practice through the work of the organization. The COO will help others at the Institute for Jewish Spirituality deliver measurable, cost-effective results that make its vision a reality in ways consistent with its values.
