About ShadowLight
The Cattle Car: Stepping In and Out of Darkness is an immersive, 360-degree multimedia exhibit dedicated to educating people about the Holocaust.

Created by young leaders, the exhibit is traveling to over 50 university and high school campuses throughout North America as part of the Hate Ends Now Tour in partnership with Southern NCSY.

  • Create and provide the whole educational experience for the visitors
  • Provide a pre and post educational tour discussion, encouraging visitors to use critical thinking, and an understanding of social justice, diversity and acceptance.
  • Keep track of groups and make sure everything is running according to schedule

  Beth Emeth Synagogue and Adath Israel Congregation – two of Toronto’s leading Conservative synagogues – are pleased to announce the creation of a new, shared programming position. The successful candidate will have the responsibility of creating deeper connections and engagement amongst our children, teenagers, and young family members through the delivery of meaningful experiential and ritual-based programs.
This is an ideal position for those interested in pursuing a career as a Jewish community professional in the city of Toronto.

This is a 40-hour-per-week job with flexible hours. The successful candidate will have the ability to create their Monday to Friday work schedule centered around program planning and implementation.
