Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future and Institute for University–School Partnership is to host their annual Jewish Job Fair on Thursday, February 26, in Furst Hall on YU’s Wilf Campus, 500 West 185th Street in New York City. The event is free and open to the public from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., with priority admission for YU students and alumni beginning at 6:00 p.m.
In addition to showcasing a variety of professional opportunities at well-respected Jewish schools, organizations, and nonprofits, the event provides a robust networking forum for job hunters seeking information on everything from scholarships and internships to career-development programming.
“Each year, the YU Jewish Job Fair grows to include more incredible schools and organizations from all over the Jewish world,” said Rabbi Maccabee Avishur, associate director for teaching and learning at the YU School Partnership. “Hundreds of job seekers interested in avodat ha’kodesh come together in a professional setting that pulses with energy to explore more than 100 available opportunities. We’re looking forward to this year’s job fair being the largest and best yet.”
Dozens of Jewish day schools and community organizations from across North America will be in attendance to meet and conduct interviews with candidates. More than 60 day schools will be participating, including schools from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Florida, Missouri, Ohio, Texas, Tennessee, Virginia, and Canada. Participating organizations include Yachad, Camp Shalom, and ORA (Organization for the Resolution of Agunot).
