Samuel Kroot Internship Program



The Samuel Kroot Internship Program is named in memory of the former president of the Jewish Federation, Samuel Kroot, for his interest in professional development in the field of Jewish communal service. We would also like to recognize the Kroot family for their continued commitment as well as the Estate of Charles Sydney who has further endowed this fund.


This program provides an opportunity for those who have completed at least one year of college to work at one of the six Federation agencies and to learn about the structure and social services in the Jewish community.


The goal of this internship is to interest the individual in a career choice in Jewish communal service.


The total time commitment required for each internship is 190 hours, which can be divided up as deemed necessary by internship supervisors. These are paid internships. Periodically, unpaid internships are available.




Application Deadline: May 1
