Director, Government Affairs

Washington, District of Columbia, United States · Public Policy/Government Affairs


The Jewish Federations of North America (“JFNA”) represents 147 Jewish Federations and over 300 Network communities, which raise and distribute more than $3 billion annually for social welfare, social services and educational needs. The Federation movement, collectively among the top 10 charities on the continent, protects and enhances the well-being of Jews worldwide through the values of tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedakah (charity and social justice) and Torah (Jewish learning).


The Director of Government Affairs will join a public policy team based in Washington, DC that represents the Federation movement before Congress and the Administration. JFNA-Washington focuses on human services funding and policy issues of interest to Federations and their affiliated social service providers. The Director will help lead JFNA-Washington’s governmental affairs strategies and will assume a portfolio that will likely include family and children’s issues, anti-Semitism and other forms of bias, and foreign policy. Once assuming this position, the Director will need to register as a lobbyist with Congress.
