RTI (Research Training Internship) Application Due Date

Join the RTI teen research team, get paid, and make a serious contribution to the Jewish community!

The Jewish Federation of Chicago’s Research Training Internship (RTI), a selective 10-month paid internship where high-school-aged girls like you will advise The Jewish Federation’s work from your unique perspectives. The Jewish Federation of Chicago is interested in learning about the messages Jewish teen girls receive—from popular culture, from parents and other adults, from the Jewish community, from schools, even from peers—about who they are supposed to be and to become. RTI is hosted by the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago in partnership with Ma'yan and the Beck Research Initiative for Women, Gender, and Community.

Intergenerational Family Workshop

The program will be in conjunction with our upcoming exhibition, Stories of Survival: Object. Image. Memory. The exhibition features personal artifacts, photographed by Jim Lommasson, and brought to America by local Survivors of the Holocaust and other genocides, including Armenia, Bosnia, Cambodia, Iraq, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Syria. Photographs with written text by Survivors and their family members describing the object’s significance and history, and the original objects will be on display at the Museum. Curated in honor of the Museum’s 10th anniversary, this exhibition will then travel to other venues beginning in 2019.

Treasured objects, whether large or small, simple or valuable, are often passed down through families to remind us of shared experiences and favorite memories. Who owned it? Where was it found? How was it used? Why is it so important? Everyone and every object has a tale to tell.
