Internship Opportunity

The Small Town Jewish History Project is engaged in documenting the lives of Jews living in the small towns of Western Pennsylvania through the collection of oral histories, synagogue records, and family and business papers. The materials collected become part of the Rauh Jewish Archives and the museum collection of the Heinz History Center.
A student intern will transcribe oral histories according to established standards. The student will also have the opportunity to sit in on oral history interviews as well as be involved in other aspects of the project. A minimum of 6 hours per week will be expected.
A writing sample is requested. For more information call or email
