The AJWS Advocacy and Jewish Engagement department envisions and executes all strategy toward a progressive foreign policy agenda that affirms and promotes human rights with U.S government stakeholders and institutions on behalf of our partners around the world. The work leans heavily on a national network of rabbis, cantors, and Jewish communal institutions who coalesce to play an essential role in advocating for justice and human rights in U.S. foreign policy.

The Senior Program Officer (SPO) is an integral member of the Jewish Engagement program, serving as thought partner to the Associate Director and implementer of the program’s strategic direction. The SPO will translate AJWS’s U.S. advocacy agenda into action, designing advocacy campaigns, lobbying efforts, digital actions, and other opportunities for AJWS clergy, high-level donors, and other grasstops leaders to speak out for change on global human rights issues.

The SPO will create opportunities to leverage the power and moral authority of these leaders to advocate to Congress, Executive branch offices, and Jewish communal institutions in support of policies that promote and empower the work of AJWS grantees. They will provide a broad range of support for AJWS’s signature Global Justice Fellowship clergy program (the GJF) and will also lead the Jewish Rohingya Justice Network (the JRJN), a prominent AJWS-led coalition of 35 organizations and all major branches of American Judaism that stand together against genocide. The SPO will also represent AJWS in other coalition spaces as needed. More generally, the SPO will mobilize targeted constituencies in the Jewish community around human rights issues in AJWS focus countries and U.S. policy related to these issues.
