The Center for Jewish History (www.cjh.org) is a cultural institution, independent research facility and destination for the exploration of history and heritage that stands as a model of how libraries and learning institutions can best serve 21st-century publics. As an important venue for public programming, exhibitions, family history research and scholarship, the Center serves a diverse onsite community and a global online audience. The Center for Jewish History’s Division of Academic & Public Programming produces exhibitions and programs that embody the principle that rather than being divided into two distinct realms, “academic” and “public,” programming should be integrated for the mutual fulfillment and enrichment of each. The division also administers the Center’s Fellowship Program. The Senior Manager for Academic & Public Programs will work with the Director of Academic & Public Programming and alongside colleagues in fundraising, communications and collections management, as well as various staff members at each of the Center’s five partner organizations.
