Internship at Beit Hatfutsot
- Are you looking for a fun and meaningful opportunity to work within one of Israel’s leading international cultural institutions?
- What about being a part of a dynamic team of multi-lingual interns from across the world?
From event planning, social media blogging and online marketing & e-commerce, to database management and archival footage sourcing, this is for young millennials interested in experiencing a unique internship and exploring one of Israel’s leading cultural and historical institutions.
This is a “behind the scenes” encounter with our museum’s renewal and rebranding process that impacts on all areas of the interns’ work. Interns are mentored by the museum’s senior educators at the International School for Jewish Peoplehood Studies, a vibrant, interactive and informal educational department at the museum that strengthens Jewish identity and perpetuates Jewish heritage worldwide.
Would you like to impact the Jewish world?
Share and interact with our museum visitors and then reach beyond the confines of our museum walls and export an array of creative initiatives online via social media in collaboration with the museum’s professional staff.
How about participating in an enriching Israeli and Jewish peoplehood experience while building your leadership skills and enhancing your resume? Choose from six possible diverse areas:
- Culture & Social Media Blogging encourages interns to describe and blog their internship experience related to the museum’s events and weekly visits to other cultural institutions;
- International Jewish Peoplehood Programs offers interns a chance to tweak educational curricula, tools and programs, update int’l. museum partners and manage a Facebook page;
- Jewish Peoplehood Advocate manages the intern group, creates fun and meaningful content for the weekly educational outings and works with the museum’s social media department to produce Jewish peoplehood content for the museum’s Facebook page;
- Database Researcher works with the museum’s director of databases and collections to categorize, edit and proof read archival material, content and images for the upcoming online museum. Explore an array of facts, figures, anecdotes, narratives, vintage photos and cultural descriptions on the museum’s database. Research, enhance or create encyclopedic values about Jewish communities, topics and personalities;
- Content & Social Media Associate works directly with the museum’s social media professionals to research, produce and develop online content for the museum’s social media networks;
What are the other additional benefits?
Participate in on-going Jewish peoplehood informal education and create an interactive presentation towards your official Jewish peoplehood internship certificate.
What are the internship schedule guidelines?
Interns volunteer 3-4 days/week for 2-4 months. Our three internship periods start around March 1st-June 30th, June 1st-July 31st, and September/October- January 31st. We request interns to volunteer 4x/week, since we invest time and effort for a meaningful experience. We could consider other scheduling, on a case-by-case basis. There are no financial stipends available. We often work in partnership with MASA, and encourage potential applicants to contact them for internship support and request our museum for placement.
