Summer Internship at the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington!

Perhaps in tandem with Shavuot (studying old documents? OK, it’s a stretch :P), I’m pleased to check in with the news that I’ll be spending much of my summer at the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington, cataloging records spanning 100 years having to do with the Jewish Community Centers in the Washington area. I’m so excited to learn more about the storied histories of the JCC of Greater Washington and the DCJCC!

Beyond archival duties I’ll also be helping out in the Society where I can, including writing entries on their blog. Check out my inaugural post, chronicling a lecture by Interpretive Programs Manager David McKenzie on Jewish Washington: Scrapbook of an American Jewish Community.

And with school cooling off for a little while, I plan to be back here a bit more, too! Stay tuned for new features this summer, and chag sameach!
