The Museum of Jewish Heritage is now offering a paid internship opportunity.

The Lipper Internship Program at the Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust is an outstanding opportunity for college students in a variety of fields and from a variety of backgrounds. The Lipper program brings together graduate and undergraduate students for a semester-long internship in museum education.

Interns in the program participate in an initial two-week training course in New York City conducted by Museum staff and scholars. Following training, interns work throughout the semester with middle and high school students in their communities. Each intern conducts classroom visits to teach the chronology of the Holocaust, leads the classes through tours of the Museum, and then returns to the classes for post-visit sessions to reinforce and expand upon what the students have learned. For their work, students receive a stipend and travel expenses. Students of all backgrounds and academic interests may apply.

The application deadline for the fall 2011 semester of the Lipper Internship Program is Friday, April 1, 2011. For more information and to download an application, visit the Lipper Internship Program Website. Students interested in applying may contact Dr. Geoff Hempill at or 718.982.2301 for assistance with their applications. Further information can also be found in the Career and Scholarship Center in Building 1A, Room 105.
