The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA)’s Washington Office, the policy arm of JFNA, is seeking a remote part-time intern for fall 2020 who wants to pursue their interests in Jewish communal work, national policy and advocacy, and/or program management.
JFNA is among the top 10 charities in the world. JFNA’s Washington Office brings the voice of 146 Jewish community federations and over 300 independent Jewish communities throughout North America to Capitol Hill and the Administration as a prominent force in policy decision-making. One intern will be assigned to the Public Policy team in Washington and will focus on Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month (JDAIM). The intern will educate community members about the month, publicize JFNA’s leadership role, and help local communities, and national and local Jewish institutions create their own Jewish disability inclusion content, helping to turn this into a national event that engages thousands of community members. Time permitting, the intern will work on a variety of other research and writing advocacy projects that promote JFNA’s public policy priorities.
