Who You Are:
You are eager to take a small community organization and help us grow from good to great. You know how to connect with Jews of all backgrounds, practices, and expressions of faith.

You are skilled at database management, CRM programs, and communication. You thrive on building relationships to further fundraising goals. 

Who We Are:
Mikveh Bess Israel was founded by European immigrants in 1852 as part of their effort to develop permanent Jewish roots in the Hartford Area. A century later, Holocaust survivors saw in the mikveh a source of renewal in their adopted home. Their generation incorporated the mikveh as a nonprofit organization. Although the mikveh has relocated a number of times since its inception, each transition has furthered the mission of the mikveh to provide the Jewish community with a safe and sacred space for cleansing and purification. The Greater Hartford community mikveh remains the source of enduring Jewish life today. The obligation of building a mikveh has been recognized as essential for many centuries. Mikveh Bess Israel is an Orthodox organization that serves the entire spectrum of the Jewish community. We celebrated a rededication in the Spring of 2014. We reincorporated and revised our by-laws in 2021, preparing for a strong future with up-to-date governance. With a distinguished history of 170 years, we are ready for the challenges of the future.

Benchmarks for Success: We believe that success is an organization that has a strategic plan for a new facility (likely 5 years from now) and a fundraising campaign that leads toward sustainability. Seed funding for this position comes from the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Hartford.
