High Holidays, Shabbat, and Events

Beyt Tikkun: A Synagogue without Walls, is seeking an experienced Zoom Manager who will be fully responsible for planning and facilitating the Zoom administration for Shabbat, High Holidays, festivals, and possibly classes throughout the year. Our spiritually deep and politically relevant services and events will typically be held on Zoom or hybrid from our Berkeley location. At Beyt Tikkun, we work together with purpose, mutual respect, integrity, compassion, and a sense of humor to keep it all in perspective.

The Zoom manager (ZM) can be virtual, although it would be ideal to be on-site the second day of Rosh Hashanah, and occasional events. The ZM will ensure that all technical aspects of the services run smoothly and will collaborate with the Rabbis to provide a rich, low-stress, interactive experience for all participants. 

Job Description 

We seek an experienced individual who will be fully responsible for setting up, running, and monitoring the Zoom services for Shabbat, High Holidays, festivals, and some classes for Beyt Tikkun. The congregation numbers approximately 20 to 40 participants on Shabbat, and 100 – 250 for High Holy Day services. The ZM will participate in planning meetings and decisions regarding how to implement and optimize Zoom for Zoom-only and hybrid services/classes. A high level of independence, competence, and accountability is necessary to ensure that the Rabbis, guest speakers, and congregants have a meaningful spiritual experience.
