Lehrhaus – Bartender

Lehrhaus: A Jewish Tavern & House of Learning featuring creative takes on food from around the Jewish world is looking for a fun & outgoing bartender to join their team. Lehrhaus is a project unlike any other, and one of the hottest new openings in Somerville and Cambridge. Check out the accolades from the front page of The Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, Eater Boston, and Thrillist and come be a part of building this unique concept!

Lehrhaus operates a unique service model in which all front of house staff share responsibilities and work each aspect of service from bartending to food-running. Our hospitality-driven modified counter service encourages interaction and story telling while also creating a streamlined experience for both our guests and staff. As we like to say, we’re not full service, but we are full hospitality.

The beverage program is the brain-child of award winning bar manager Naomi Levy (Eastern Standard, Bow Market, Maccabee Bar, and more), with cocktails ranging across continents, exploring the dynamic flavors of the Jewish diaspora. The food menu is similarly a wide representation of what Jewish food has come to encompass today.

We encourage all backgrounds to apply. The ideal candidate will have at least one year of restaurant experience and a passion for hospitality. Bartending experience is preferred, however we are happy to train the right person who is looking to take the next step in their career. Sunday availability is a must.

About Lehrhaus

The world’s first Jewish Tavern and House of Learning, Lehrhaus is an entirely new kind of gathering space: a welcoming, stylish, smart, sociable neighborhood watering hole that brings people together. We’re dedicated to sharing Jewish culture through the wide ranging flavors of the diaspora, culinary storytelling, and welcoming hospitality. Books, texts, and classes are available to anyone interested in diving deeper into the traditional Jewish practice of text study. Lehrhaus is a space for people of all backgrounds to experience Judaism through food & drink, ancient texts, poetry, literature, lively conversation, and more. Lehrhaus offers a kosher, pescatarian, and dairy (no meat other than fish, no shellfish) menu to be as inclusive as possible to all diets.

Why work at Lehrhaus?
Our hybrid not-for-profit model allows us to offer a great collaborative workplace. We want to build a better, gentler, more sustainable, and inclusive version of the restaurant industry. We offer manageable hours, competitive wages, great benefits, and room to advance. Following the rhythms of the Jewish calendar, the team enjoys many Friday nights, Saturday days, and Jewish holidays off.
