Workum Internship - Summer 2019

Organization Description:

Northern Hills Synagogue, a small, friendly congregation of 180 member units, is a cutting-edge place of worship, learning and connection for Jewish people of all ages, and their partners, regardless of their level of Jewish engagement or observance. In addition to traditional Shabbat and holiday services, NHS runs family Shabbat services as well as alternative adult services for those seeking a more intimate setting in which to experiment with different types of music, prayer, spiritual content and more. The congregation is also committed to lifelong learning and runs a wide variety of engaging educational programs for people of every age and interest.  From HaZak for seniors, to Sisterhood, Men’s Club and more, fun and creative social programming is also a key ingredient in making the congregation so special to its members.Our Religious School, The Spark School for Experiential Jewish Learning, is dedicated to providing a high quality Jewish education that combines creativity, fun and interactive learning with a low student to teacher ratio that allows for individualized attention.

Northern Hills Synagogue (NHS) was founded as Congregation Beth El in 1960 and merged with Congregation B’nai Avraham (the Norwood Synagogue) in 1967.  In 2004, as the synagogue’s membership and the Jewish community at large was migrating northeast, NHS moved from its 51 year home in Finneytown to its current location on Fields Ertel Road in Deerfield Township.
