Open Positions

Director, Civic Engagement

If you read the L.A. Times every day and want to make our civic space the best it can be then you’re on the same page with The Jewish Federation. We’re looking for a professional with strategic knowledge of state and local politics who is excited to build and nurture relationships with elected officials and community leaders and their staffs, both Jewish and non-Jewish, in Greater Los Angeles and Sacramento. Through outreach in diverse communities, the right candidate will connect leaders to our Federation, creating touchpoints/engagement opportunities that enhance our profile as a good citizen. This person will also be instrumental in helping create the next generation of Jewish leaders in Los Angeles. If you have a background in government relations, leadership training, civic or public affairs, a passion for Jewish values and want to be a team player with a purpose, we want to hear from you.

 

The Director, Engagement and Development-Venice Beach offers the right individual an incredible opportunity: the chance to share Jewish learning and inspire philanthropy through one-on-one outreach to young Jews who work in the tech space on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. It could be a Jewish teacher or rabbi – definitely a leader who doesn’t need a classroom or a pulpit to share their passion. The perfect candidate would be a tzaddik who can surf.  But we’d settle for someone who can hang out with young Jews who may be incredibly successful but are looking for more. Serious contenders will be as comfortable talking about meaning as they are about making a fundraising ask. We’re looking for a maven who lives Jewish values IRL, who is ready to create and support a whole new kind of Jewish community in the tech space. So far, there’s no app for that. But, hopefully, that’s where you come in.

The Proposal & Donor Report Manager is an opportunity for a writer who wants to make a difference by bringing Jewish values to life by using their way with words to inspire philanthropic gifts to The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles, the organization has had a profound impact on the well-being of Jews in Los Angeles, Israel and beyond for over 100 years.

This position requires a team player who will thrive in a collaborative atmosphere, working on a variety of projects. We’re looking for a writer who has a head for details and a heart for making the world a better place.  If this sounds like you, please send us a cover letter that demonstrates your command of language and your ability to inspire a reader, that would be us, to say, “yes.”
