Do you love history, architecture and/or Jewish culture? Our Museum Internships  program take you behind the scenes of one of NYC’s most important Jewish sites, the 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue. College and graduate level student interns learn about museum practice and gain professional skills in a variety of fields, including public programming, education, fundraising, communications, and archives.

The Museum offers fall, spring & summer internships for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent college graduates. Over the past several years, we have had interns from Brandeis University, Brown University, Grinnell College, Jewish Theological Seminary, The New School, Pratt Institute, Rutgers University, Skidmore College, University of Pennsylvania, University of Vermont, University of Illinois, Williams College, Yeshiva University and more.

Our internship program is highly competitive and only a few interns are chosen each year. Acceptance into the internship program is based on academic achievement, interests, experience, related skills, motivation and availability. Time commitments are flexible and can range from as little as ten hours to thirty-five hours per week. The Museum at Eldridge Street encourages diversity and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds.


We are currently accepting applications for summer 2020 internships. If you would like to apply for an internship with the Museum in summer 2020, please send a resume and short cover letter to with the subject line “Events and Public Engagement Internship”. 


This internship offers hands-on experience in a wide array of museum departments. Interns work closely with staff and fellow interns on a variety of projects, learn to give tours to visitors and perform other admissions duties, assist with planning and hosting cultural programs, aid in promotion and marketing, conduct research, write for the blog, and more.
