Employment Opportunities

At Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership, we believe that having the right people in the right positions is the most important ingredient to create vibrant organizations that strenthen and sustain communities. That's why it's our pleasure to do everything we can to create a shidduch (Yiddish for "match") between organizations and the leaders who will best serve them.

In that spirit, here you'll find positions currently open for our own staff along with some of our favorite career resources and select positions at other organizations.
