This is a Full-time position in Los Angeles, CA posted September 8, 2021.

Senior Director of Human Resources


About the Position

This newly created position provides high-level leadership and strategic guidance to the leadership team at Stephen Wise Temple and Schools.

As a member of the Senior Leadership Team, the position is responsible for complying with and implementing labor laws, policies, procedures and best practices, as well as identifying long-term HR goals and objectives.

But we are also looking for a strategist who can identify and develop our culture throughout the organization.

The Senior Director of Human Resources supervises a Payroll & HR Administrator, and reports jointly to the CFO and Executive Director/COO.

About Us

Founded in 1964, Stephen Wise Temple is one of the largest Reform Jewish synagogues and schools in the world.

The Wise community consists of a thriving congregation; Wise School (a top-tier K-6 elementary school and Early Childhood Center); Center for Youth Engagement (including Religious School, teen programming, and Camp Wise); weekly worship services; and hundreds of opportunities for deep learning,  tikkun olam  (social justice/helping those in need), and Jewish engagement throughout the year.

With 1,600 member families and more than 170 regular employees, Wise is known for its extensive educational, spiritual, and musical programs designed for individuals, couples, and families at all stages of life.

The Wise campus is located on 19 beautiful acres atop the Mulholland Corridor of the Santa Monica Mountains and includes the state-of-the-art Katz Family Pavilion for athletic activities and diverse major events.

The community founded by Rabbi Isaiah Zeldin is now led by Rabbi Yoshi Zweiback and a committed team of educators, administrators, and lay volunteers.

Wise makes meaning and changes the world.
