Workum Summer Intern for the JCRC

About the JCRC:
The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) serves as the public affairs and community relations arm of the organized Jewish community. It is a non-profit organization funded by the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati. The mission of the JCRC of Cincinnati is to protect Jewish security, recognizing that Jewish security depends on a just society for all. To achieve its mission, the JCRC works on a broad range of local, national and international issues, concentrating its efforts in the areas of Israel, the Middle East and anti-Semitism. The JCRC also works closely with leaders and organizations representing Cincinnati’s diverse faith, secular and community organizations.

Job Description:
The Workum Intern will have the opportunity to participate in the following tasks to support the work of the JCRC:

  • JCRC Website and Materials – Help us update our website and our informational materials.
  • Programming – Help us plan, execute and staff our events as they come up.

  • Research – Conduct research as necessary on current events and other topics. This also includes participating in meetings and conference calls and taking thorough notes on what was accomplished and learned.

  • Media – Review Jewish and non-Jewish media to locate relevant articles and pieces of news to support the work of the JCRC. In some cases, synthesize and report on these to the JCRC staff.

  • Administrative – Help the JCRC to maintain an up-to-date database and make contact with various constituency representatives as necessary toward this goal.

  • Community Relations – Participate in community events as a representative of the JCRC. Follow up by producing reports on what was accomplished and learned at the events.

  • Flexibility – Our work varies and cannot always be planned in advance. Other projects and tasks may come up unexpectedly, so it is important for the intern to be flexible and open to taking these on as needed.
