Experiences of Previous Interns

“My internship with the Jerusalem Institute of Justice gave me two terrific outlets for my love of Israel: to learn first-hand about the structure of Israeli government, and to support the worthy causes of JIJ’s clients!”  — J.B.

“My experience interning for JIJ was engaging, challenging and diversified. My main task involved helping to initiate JIJ’s Anti-human trafficking project (NOA). In addition to touring some of Tel Aviv’s brothels and assisting in providing medical care for women on the streets, I met with local anti-trafficking activists in the Jerusalem area and attended Knesset committee meetings concerning the issue of women’s rights and human trafficking. I managed and used my own research to develop international strategies for combating both human trafficking and prostitution around the world, and provided regular updates to JIJ supporters on the progress of project NOA. Regarding this project, I was given a large amount of freedom with regular progress updates. In addition, I assisted in legal research and projects concerning the civil rights of various religious minorities in Israel, looking at both individual cases and large-scale demographics of the region. This internship allowed many interesting avenues to pursue, provided me with extensive writing experiences, and substantially increased my knowledge of religious and civil rights issues faced by citizens and non-citizens of Israel alike. ”  — C.S.
