Graduate Student Intern for Engagement and Programming
Lehigh University Hillel and Office of Jewish Student Life
Lehigh University Hillel and the Office of Jewish Student Life is seeking a rabbinic intern to focus on engagement and programming. The graduate student must be passionate about Jewish life and about building Jewish community. The candidate will be enthusiastic about working with Jewish undergraduate students. They must also be creative with regard to community building, outreach and programming.
They will be flexible and energetic; they will be eager to connect with Jewish students on campus and inspire them to become more involved in Jewish life in a way that works for them. The internship is a terrific opportunity for professional growth and rabbinic experience.
The graduate student intern will work closely with and be supervised by Rabbi Steve Nathan, the Director of Jewish Student Life. Together they will create a plan of action for engaging the maximum number of Jewish students through one-on-one interactions and creating new and exciting programs. This will be done in conjunction with the Hillel leadership. They will also work with Rabbi Nathan to supervise and collaborate with our students who are part of the Hillel Peer Engagement Intern Network.
In addition, as part of the Office of Jewish Student Life, the intern will have opportunity to interact with other clergy, as well as staff members from the other offices within the Division of Diversity Inclusion and Equity (see below). This a great way to experience and observe what it is like to be part of the University, as well as Hillel.
Who You Are:
Your skill set:
Some examples of what you might do:
Hours, Responsibilities and Supervision
The Engagement and Programming Intern will work 10-15 hours per week during the academic year. The exact hours will be determined by your schedule and the needs of the campus community, but will be divided over two days per week.
You will be supervised directly by Rabbi Steve Nathan, Director of Jewish Student Life and Associate Chaplain at Lehigh.
Your top priorities will be: interacting with as many individual and small group of Jewish students as possible, as well as planning, publicizing and implementing one or two programs each month in collaboration with students. This can be with Hillel leaders, students with whom you’ve connected and/or peer engagement interns.
You will supervise and collaborate with the peer engagement interns together with the director in order to determine the most effective methods for engagement and outreach. You will also maintain records of student interactions and event attendance for ongoing engagement tracking/measurement and evaluation.
Participation in Shabbat and holiday services or programming will not be required, though you would certainly be welcome to attend. It is possible that you would plan a program or activity for Shabbat or a holiday. This would be determined as part of the planning process referred to above.
Obviously, all of the above cannot be done in 10 hours. You will work together with Steve Nathan to determine each week’s priorities based on the current needs of Lehigh Jewish community, and with input from student leadership.
The stipend for the internship will depend on experience and the number of hours you work. Lehigh will also pay for you to attend the Hillel International Global Assembly in December. Attendance is a requirement, unless there are extenuating circumstances.
