  • Jewish Heritage Program Fellow

With World Monuments Fund’s Jewish Heritage Program now in its 30th year, we are recruiting
a Fellow to assist with research and strategic development for the next phase of the program.
This is a temporary, full‐time and time‐limited Fellowship from April 2019 to December 31,
2019.

WMF is increasingly focusing its activities on the World Monuments Watch—our biennial
program that lifts grassroots conservation initiatives to a global stage—as an engine for social
change through heritage conservation. The JHP Fellow will play a crucial role in network
development to cultivate strong nominations for the Watch program, by developing
collaborative partnerships with other Jewish heritage organizations and sites that have the
potential for meaningful program development. WMF has a strong track record of working at
Jewish sites in post‐Soviet, Eastern Europe countries, and we aim to further broaden our
network to celebrate the plurality of the Jewish experience worldwide.
By the end of the fellowship, the JHP Fellow will have conducted research and interviews to
develop a position paper for the Jewish Heritage Program. This will assess WMF’s historical
work through the program, what we are currently doing well, and ways we can expand our
work and deepen our impact moving forward. The paper will also report on trends in the Jewish
heritage field, including places where our support through the Watch program would be most
effective.

Major areas of responsibility and related tasks include:

  • Research and solicit information on sites that may qualify for the World Monuments
  • Watch program;
  • Build relationships with other Jewish Heritage organizations and initiatives to identify opportunities for collaboration that address current issues in the field;
  • Update existing contacts database for JHP donors and project partners;
  • Edit resources and materials on the Jewish Heritage Program, and assist in the creation of an online feature highlighting the program and past projects; and
  • Update website project descriptions and images, and reorganize server files.

Skills and other qualifications:

  • Exceptional research and writing skills;
  • Demonstrated interest in Jewish Heritage and cultural heritage conservation;
  • Currently enrolled in or recently completed a graduate degree program related to Jewish Studies or historic preservation;
  • Attention to detail, with exceptional organization and project management skills;
  • Ability to carry out tasks as assigned and communicate effectively with colleagues; and
  • Knowledge of foreign languages preferred.

Salary:

  • This is a temporary, full‐time and time‐limited Fellowship from April 2019 to December 31, 2019. Fellows must commit to the entire period.
  • The Fellowship pays $24 an hour and includes benefits
