The position is perfect for a self-starter looking to grow both personally and professionally. The internship is supervised by the Director of External Relations but works with the entire staff. You will work with outreach to North American communities through print and social media; managing the English Facebook page, heading up the Friends of the Daniel Center’s North American Newsletter and helping to create advertising materials both for events at the synagogues and the tour center, as well as larger projects. Depending on interest and ability, the position allows for grant research, tutoring current conversion students, blogging, and participation in the Mishkenot Ruth Tour Center just to name a few!
The Daniel Centers for Progressive Judaism in Tel Aviv-Jaffa serve the metropolis of Tel Aviv-Jaffa with three vibrant centers – Beit Daniel in northern Tel Aviv, Mishkenot Ruth Daniel in the heart of Jaffa and Kehilat Halev in central Tel Aviv. As a religious, cultural and educational center, we bridge the gap between secular Israelis and their Jewish heritage, and between our traditions and today’s modern world, and build lasting connections between the Diaspora and Israel.
Our vision is to give secular Israelis a meaningful sense of Jewish progressive purpose, to build an Israel which is tolerant, just and welcoming of multiple expressions of religious and spiritual practice and to create deep and meaningful connections to all the disparate arms of Diaspora Judaism. While we are proud of our success so far, the task is immense. We seek partners, participants, congregants and supporters to help make this vision a reality.
