Yeshiva University Hosts February 28 Job Fair for Communal and Educational Careers
Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future (CJF) and Institute for University-School Partnership (YU School Partnership) will host their annual Jewish Job Fair on Thursday, February 28, 2013 in Furst Hall on YU’s Wilf Campus, 500 West 185th Street in New York City. The event is free and open to the public from 7 – 9 p.m., with priority admission for YU students and alumni beginning at 6 p.m.
In addition to showcasing a variety of professional opportunities at well-respected Jewish schools, organizations and non-profits, the event provides a robust networking forum for job-hunters seeking information on everything from scholarships and internships to career development programming.
“Our annual Jewish Job Fair is a natural outgrowth of our mission to support and strengthen Jewish communities and organizations around the world,” said Rabbi Kenneth Brander, David Mitzner Dean of the CJF. “It also provides a platform for talented Jewish leaders to connect with opportunities that will allow them to make their mark on the Jewish world and beyond. We consider it our responsibility to make sure that our graduates are given opportunities to share their unique talents in shaping the Jewish communal landscape.”
Dozens of Jewish day schools and community organizations from across the North America will be in attendance to meet and conduct interviews with candidates. Participating organizations include the Orthodox Union, Repair the World, Nefesh B’ Nefesh, OHEL, Drisha Institute for Jewish Education, Manhattan Jewish Experience, AMIT Children, Aish NY, Organization for the Resolution of Agunot (ORA) and Yeshiva University.
More than 40 day schools will be participating, including schools from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Florida, Missouri, Ohio, Texas, Tennessee, Virginia and Canada.
“Not only are more Yeshiva University graduates pursuing careers in Jewish communal service and Jewish education but the quality continues to advance,” said Dr. Scott Goldberg, director of the YU School Partnership. “It is a great privilege and thrill to match these professionals with opportunities where they can make a real difference and will feel fulfilled.”
