Jewish Council for Public Affairs


New York City


The Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) is the national convener of Jewish coalitions working to build a just and inclusive American democracy. For 80 years, JCPA has brought together national and local organizations and built bridges across communities to address the most pressing issues of the day and set strategies for advocacy and mobilization.
JCPA recently announced its new strategic focus, building on its long legacy of convening the Jewish community to work toward a just and inclusive society — recognizing that Jewish safety is inextricably linked with the safety of other communities and a strong, multiracial, multifaith democracy. This work is more urgent than ever in the face of an unprecedented crisis and broader rise in antisemitism and other forms of hate and extremism.

This role will work closely with the CEO and other staff to develop strategic communications and engaging digital content, including social media, emails, online actions, web posts, and more – with the goal of furthering JCPA’s advocacy, fundraising, and public engagement.

  • Track and manage JCPA’s online fundraising strategy.
  • Manage the JCPA website, including the development of new web content.
  • Working with other JCPA staff members, oversee the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database.
  • Working with the COO and Senior VP for Community Relations in developing sample communications materials and other resources for Jewish Community Relations Councils, JCPA Action Networks, and other partners and stakeholders.

Skills and Qualifications

  • Strong strategic communications and writing skills, including the ability to craft messages for different audiences.

  • Passionate about the values and priorities at the core of JCPA’s work, including democracy and pluralism.

Compensation and Other Details

  • JCPA is headquartered in New York City and would prefer candidates based there; however, we are also open to the right candidate in Washington, D.C. or in a remote capacity.
  • The compensation range for this role is $110,000 to $135,000 dependent on experience, plus full benefits that include health, dental, and life insurance and a retirement plan.
