The Jewish Federations of North America
Summer Internship Opportunity
The national office of one of the premier American Jewish organizations is seeking summer interns who are looking to combine their interests in Jewish communal work and national politics.
The Jewish Federations of North America – Washington is the legislative arm of The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), bringing the voice of 157 Jewish community federations and over 300 independent Jewish communities throughout North America to Capitol Hill as a prominent force in health and human service policy decision-making. JFNA’s legislative agenda is focused on bolstering baby boomer retirement policy, protecting Medicaid’s mission and funding, safeguarding non-profits from terrorism, and creating new alternatives for long-term elder care.
JFNA interns will have the unique and unparalleled opportunity of exposure to a wide range of national public policy issues. Through this internship, interns will learn innovative approaches to stimulate community interest by organizing and informing local grassroots networks of Jewish federations. This includes day-to-day responsibilities of attending congressional hearings, taking part in advocacy/leadership training days, compiling and analyzing surveys, and researching and writing on issues which include, but are not limited to, senior transportation, aging, and family caregiving.
Internships during the summer are full-time. All internships are paid.
