Yeshiva University’s annual Jewish Job Fair is one of the largest Jewish networking opportunities in the United States. Organizers expect that many Jewish professionals and representatives of dozens of Jewish organizations will be at the fair, set for February 27 on the university’s Wilf campus in Manhattan’s Washington Heights. Participants can meet with a variety of Jewish organizations, educational institutions, and advocacy groups to learn about the work the organizations do and opportunities they offer for employment, as well as on-the-spot interviews for openings.
The fair is a collaborative effort between Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future, the Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration, the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies, Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, and Wurzweiler School of Social Work.
Azrieli Graduate School also will host the first “Azrieli HUB: Reconnect, Connect, Recharge” conference before the fair. Billed as an “unconvention,” the HUB will convene Orthodox Jewish education professionals, Azrieli students, and alumni to consider and address the challenges and opportunities that students, schools, and families present.
The two-day HUB conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Englewood from February 26 to 27. On the second day, the HUB will move to the Wilf Campus in upper Manhattan for the final segment of the program and the Jewish Job Fair, which begins at 6 p.m.
Pre-registration to the Job Fair is open for employers and job seekers. To book appointments and for instruction on how to prepare, go to www.yu.edu/jewishjobfair.
