  • Career Opportunities

    Our Career Center features jobs from Greensboro Jewish Federation, our constituent agencies and our community partners.

In an effort to protect the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff as the state responds to the continuing outbreak of novel Coronavirus, The Greensboro Jewish Federation is making the following temporary adjustments:

• The Federation building is closed to visitors unless by invitation. Staff members are working from home.

• Programming, communications and services will remain active to the fullest extent possible, going virtual when possible.

• Board and committee meetings will be held through electronic/remote access. Participants will receive dial-in information prior to each meeting.

• Delays in response time to emails and calls may occur as we continue to receive a significantly increased amount of electronic correspondence.
