Feb 23, 2009 — While the current harsh economic conditions have led to a bleak employment market, there are industries and professions that have job openings, including those in the Jewish communal and educational fields. For all those aspiring to such careers, the Yeshiva University Center for the Jewish Future is holding its inaugural Jewish Job Fair this Thursday, February 26 at 6 p.m. at YU’s Wilf Campus at 500 West 185th Street.

Participating organizations include Isralight, Jewish Community Center Association of North America, National Council of Young Israel and University Jewish Chaplaincy in London. Day schools include Akiva Hebrew Day School in Southfield, MI, Columbus Torah Academy in Ohio, Yeshivat Rambam in Baltimore, and Torah Academy of Philadelphia.
