Internship Opportunity: Museum of Jewish Heritage

Lipper Internship Program at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

An outstanding internship opportunity for college students in the Northeast. The program is designed for college and graduate students from a variety of fields and backgrounds. The ideal candidate will have a desire to learn and educate, an appreciation for museums, and an ability to work well with others.

Interns in the program participate in a ten-day training course in New York City conducted by Museum staff. Following this training, Interns return to their college campuses to work with middle and high school students in their university communities. During the semester each Intern conducts classroom visits to teach the chronology of the Holocaust, leads the classes through tours of the Museum, and then returns to the classes for post-visit sessions to reinforce and expand upon what the students have learned.

The application deadline for the Fall 2008 semester is April 1, 2008. Please find attached more information on the program and an application. Interested students may contact Mira Abramsohn, Museum Educator for Internships, at (646) 437 – 4303, or go to www.mjhnyc.org for more information.
