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 Education and Training team is seeking an intern to help update our resource library and support us connecting Jewish organizations with LGBTQ content, sample policies, and best practices. Our resource library is often the first stop for Jewish organizations seeking to grow as LGBTQ-inclusive communities, and consists of inclusion guides, lesson plans, blog posts, recorded webinars, and more. Duties will include evaluating, updatinging, and organizing existing Keshet resources, researching external resources, evaluating areas in which more resources are needed, and working with Keshet staff to develop new resources. The intern will report to Keshet’s Director of Education and Training, and will work closely with the Education and Training team, as well as the Communications Team when needed. 

Students who apply for this internship should have the following qualifications:

  • Passionate commitment to Keshet’s vision and mission of advancing LGBTQ equality in Jewish life.
  • Outstanding verbal and written communication skills and ability to communicate effectively.
  • Knowledgeable about and comfortable researching and drafting Jewish and LGBTQ content.
  • Excellent organizational skills.
  • Ability to work independently as well as collaboratively with a small staff.

This position is remote, and consists of 5 hours per week. This is an unpaid internship.
