The Art Archive Intern will assist the Hebrew University Center for Jewish Art in digitizing its archives.
The intern will be responsible for:
-Cataloging of scanned images, with descriptions
-Searching for relevant materials in archives
-Discovering a broad range of paintings, drawings, sculpture and architecture within the Jewish tradition
-Degree in Art History or Architecture
With this vision in mind the late Prof. Bezalel Narkiss, Israel Prize Laureate, established the Center for Jewish Art in 1979, as a research center at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, to preserve the artistic heritage of the Jewish people.
For over thirty years the Center has carried out a comprehensive program documenting Jewish art all over the globe, encompassing all facets of Jewish visual art. Work is performed in five sections: Hebrew Illuminated Manuscripts, Sacred and Ritual Objects, Ancient Jewish Art, Modern Jewish Art, as well as Jewish Ritual Architecture.
