The NATE Office serves the world of Reform Jewish education in many ways. One of its primary roles is to provide a Placement Service for both its professional members and for educational institutions of the Reform Movement. NATE oversees and facilitates the placement process, serving both educators and searching institutions.
NATE is able to serve as a clearninghouse both for positions that are open in congregations and institutions affiliated with the Reform Movement, and for educators who would like to fill these positions. Only NATE members who are in good standing may utilize NATE's placement service. In order to utilize NATE's placement service, a member must be current in dues.
The NATE Placement Kit: A Guide for the Educator is available below. It contains all of the information necessary for a NATE member looking for a new position in a Reform institution. The kit explains the process in detail. A separate kit is available for institutions looking to fill an educational position.
If you have questions about the Placement Process, please contact Rabbi Stanley Schickler, NATE Executive Director.
