Fall 2018 Internship Opportunity with Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) Washington Office

Aug 16, 2018

The Washington office of one of the premier American Jewish non-profits is seeking fall interns who are looking to combine their interests in Jewish communal work and national politics.


The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) Washington Office is the policy arm of JFNA, bringing the voice of 147 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. Collectively among the top 10 charities in the world, JFNA secures and manages $16 billion in endowment assets. Each year, JFNA raises over $900 million through the Annual Campaign and emergency campaigns, and distributes over $3 billion from our foundations and endowments. JFNA’s legislative agenda focuses on a variety of issues that includes, but is not limited to: bolstering health policies for older adults to age with dignity and an enhanced quality of life; protecting programs for vulnerable populations, such as domestic violence victims, LGBTQ+ persons, people with disabilities, refugees, and low-income families; supporting a strong U.S.-Israel relationship; safeguarding the Jewish community from terrorism; and more.


JFNA interns will have the unique opportunity to work on a wide range of public policy issues. Through this internship, interns will learn innovative approaches to community engagement by organizing and informing local grassroots networks of Jewish federations and affiliated social service agencies. The day-to-day responsibilities of a JFNA internship includes, but is not limited to, attending congressional hearings, taking part in advocacy/leadership training days, drafting action alerts and other advocacy materials, compiling and analyzing surveys, and researching and writing on a variety of existing and proposed policies.


Fall internships are part-time, and interns are offered a flexible stipend. In lieu of a stipend, we also offer college credit if allowed by an individual’s university/college.


If interested, please send a cover letter, resume, brief writing sample, and two references to humanresources@jfna.org
