Looking for a Sephardic Hazzan

Unpaid job posting:

A Washington DC Sephardic synagogue is seeking an observant man with a melodious voice and pleasant personality who is well-versed in a variety of Sephardic traditional styles of melody. Preferably, he should be a competent Torah reader as well, and be capable of training Bar Mitsvah students. Duties would also include working with children in a "junior congregation" setting, and participating in the development of Sephardic-themed communal programs. The more knowledgeable the candidate, the better!

The position could be full or part time, depending on the individual's interest. It is an amazing opportunity to assume a central role in the epicenter of the Sephardic community in the nation's capital - the only Sephardic synagogue in the Washington DC area, in fact. In a few years time, we expect to establish ourselves as the national center for Sephardic Jewry, both in the United States and abroad. There is unbelievable potential for a career-minded young Hazzan to flourish there. And the neighborhood and local Jewish community offer outstanding resources too.

Those interested should contact Rabbi Joshua Maroof.
