National Museum of American Jewish History Cultural Heritage Internship Program

Our internship program has been suspended in the interest of the health and safety of students and staff.

  Intern Class 2019 (2)

The National Museum of American Jewish History is a leading cultural institution with a vibrant internship program for undergraduate and graduate students who want to learn about public history, the museum profession, non-profit organizations, and the American Jewish experience. In addition, we collaborate with other cultural institutions to provide varied experiences. Interns may be placed in one of the museum departments or with a collaborative institution. All interns participate in periodic group activities including a two-hour weekly summer seminar.

Our collaborations include the following Philadelphia cultural institutions: Carpenter Hall (Job Description to Follow), The Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival, the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia Society for the Preservation of Landmarks, and the Society Hill Synagogue.

The NMAJH Internship Program is made possible, in part, by support from Anonymous, The Applebaum Family Philanthropy, The Hassel Foundation, The Stanley and Arlene Ginsburg Family Foundation, and Judy Finkel’s loving friends in honor of her special birthday.
