Full-time, Lakewood-based position. Hours are 9 am – 5 pm.
A moment with: An Oorah Bookkeeper
P.W. shares what it’s like to work as an Oorah bookkeeper.
(O) What does the bookkeeping department deal with?
(PW) Bookkeeping is a behind-the-scenes job that works closely with every part of our multi-faceted organization. We deal with the incoming and outgoing funds and donations that enable the running of a huge kiruv and non-profit organization. We take care of accounts receivable, accounts payable, credit card payments, bank reconciliations, audits, payroll, and so much more.
(O) So you get to see the bottom line?
(PW) It’s one of the perks of the job! And if people think Oorah is just about Fiveish, they have never seen what the tuition assistance bank statements or the camp expenses or Yom Tov package or event costs look like or anything else! Oorah does an incredible amount for so many people, and it’s amazing to see the numbers in black and white. But you don’t have to be a bookkeeper at Oorah to see that impact – all you have to do is see the smiles on the faces of the families whose lives have been touched deeply by Oorah!
