At Jews For Racial & Economic Justice, we practice hiring with intentionality and an understanding of how many factors, such as race and class, decrease equity in hiring interns. We strive to build a different hiring process that is more equitable and transparent.

Fill out this form to apply.
With equity in mind, we want to be transparent that we will only be reading cover letters and answers to this form. Please do not include a resume. In addition, while we ask for your name and contact information, those reviewing these submissions will have these applications anonymized to reduce hiring bias.

Reports to: Sara Goldberg, Development Manager

My (Sara) first interaction with JFREJ was attending the first national Jews of Color Convening hosted by JFREJ in 2016 which introduced me to a community I didn't even know I deeply needed. I interned at JFREJ before joining the staff full time in 2018 as a Development Associate. Now as the Development Manager, I'm looking forward to working with someone who's curious about development/fundraising work, grassroots fundraising, and ready to bring more people into this vibrant Jewish JFREJ community.

Full timeline:
Applications open - Thursday, October 18th
Applications close - Tues, October 31st, at 9:00am ET.
Start date - Mid to late November 2023
