Founded in 2005, The Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) is a Washington, D.C. based think tank and policy center with an unabashedly pro-America and pro-Israel stance. EMET (which means truth in Hebrew) prides itself on challenging the falsehoods and misrepresentations that abound in U.S. Middle East policy.
As a tax-exempt 501(C) 3 Non-Profit organization we work to educate policy-makers by providing pertinent information to senators and representatives to make informed decisions that will improve American security and the security of America’s ally, Israel. EMET earned its reputation as the “go-to-people” on Capitol Hill for Senators and Members of Congress who understand the importance of a strong and secure America, and a strong American-Israeli alliance against the forces of radical Islam and terror.
The Legislative Fellow is the primary contact for congressional offices and is responsible for all communications between EMET and congressional offices.

This role handles all scheduling and is expected to maintain the organization’s Google Calendar and Zoom accounts. The Legislative Fellow is responsible for obtaining and scheduling 10+ weekly meetings with congressional offices and handling all questions offices may have.
The current work environment is a combination of virtual and in-person and the Legislative Fellow must be able to occasionally attend in-person meetings on Capitol Hill on short notice. The Legislative Fellow is also expected to attend conferences and other in-person events when requested.
