About Keshet:

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.

About the position:

Keshet’s communications team is seeking an intern to develop and collaborate on creative digital content for use on our social media channels and in other outreach platforms. Help us grow our audience and engagement by thinking how messages are crafted and shared in text and graphics. 

Skills we’re looking for and which you will develop further as part of the internship:

  • Enjoy writing and comfortable with basic editing (you can catch typos).
  • Comfortable sourcing and creating/editing digital graphics.
  • Creating/editing web-quality video skills is a plus.
  • Organizational skills; keep track of what you’re doing and keep digital assets organized.

The Communications intern should be available to work 12 – 20 hrs a week; days/times are flexible but should be during regular business hours (M – F from 9 am – 5:30 pm).
Location: Keshet headquarters in Boston or our NY office. Some remote time possible.
