JUF IsraelNow Chicago
Hybrid (Office T/Th)
The Jewish United Fund (JUF) of Chicago is one of the largest humanitarian organizations in the country. Rooted in the belief in collective action and collective responsibility, JUF provides life-saving services and life-enriching experiences where they are needed most. The JUF IsraelNow program is an educational program designed to give eighth graders an immersive, emotional, and memorable taste of Israel and their Jewish heritage through a week-long, “hands- on” experience. The goal is that the participant returns home inspired to further their Jewish involvement in the community through continued engagement in Jewish learning experiences and activities.
JUF seeks a dynamic, entrepreneurial, and highly engaged Program Director who will provide strategy and oversight of the program’s expansion, foster relationships with multiple local stakeholders, recruit teens and trip staff and manage the logistics of the trips. The ideal candidate will be knowledgeable about Israel through a pluralistic and educational lens, be familiar with the Jewish community at-large and be able to leverage personal relationships with teens and parents.
JUF is an equal-opportunity employer.
