Put yourself at the intersection of LGBTQ rights, Jewish identity and the broader movement for social justice in American society. Keshet seeks a dynamic and experienced professional to join a phenomenal team. The Communications Associate is “the person behind the curtain” whose superior organizational skills ensure that Keshet’s communications processes run smoothly.
The Communications Associate works closely with Keshet staff from all departments to define communications projects, set deadlines, and assign responsibilities. This role is the communications calendar keeper, who schedules all communications to Keshet donors and maintains Keshet’s social media and communications schedule. They also monitor all aspects of communications projects, from start to completion, working both with other Keshet staff, as well as external contractors, writers, and designers.
The Communications Associate reports to the Chief Communications Officer and works with Keshet staff across the country. We will consider candidates located anywhere in the United States.
Keshet works for the full equality of all LGBTQ Jews and our families in Jewish life. We turn values at the heart of Judaism—equality, inclusion, and human dignity—into action in Jewish communities because when we stand by and allow LGBTQ Jews to be excluded, we hold all of Jewish life back from reaching its full potential. We equip Jewish organizations with the tools to build LGBTQ-affirming communities, create spaces for queer Jewish teens to feel valued as queer and Jewish, and mobilize the Jewish community to fight for LGBTQ justice nationwide.
As an organization that teaches the importance of proactive LGBTQ inclusive messages and actions, Keshet recognizes the similar need to make our commitment to racial equity and justice clear and explicit. We commit to embed a racial equity and justice lens into Keshet’s leadership and staff structure, political analysis, organizational policies, communications, and program content.
Keshet’s national office is in Boston with offices in San Francisco, Chicago and New York, as well.
Salary range is $42k-47k/year, commensurate with experience.
Keshet offers a competitive benefits package, and a fast-paced, purpose-driven, and fun work environment.
Please send resume and a thoughtful cover letter via email to [email protected] and include “Communications Associate” in subject line.
