Through our internship program, jU has trained over 50 student leaders and empowered them to create home-based Jewish communities in addition to public celebrations. Our interns helped develop and pioneer the Host-at-Home program, and two intern-alums have since gone on to join jU as full-time staff members after graduation.
Interns devote six to eight hours per week to the program, including a weekly two-hour study and training session with jU staff, over the course of an academic year—equivalent hours to at least two college courses. Through these sessions, interns deepen their own Jewish knowledge and creativity, are trained in community organizing and the design of meaningful experiences, organize and lead small Jewish communities, and contribute to the creation of larger-scale Jewish events (such as Jewish holiday celebrations) that are accessible to a broad spectrum of Jewish students.
