TL;DR: EA for Jews is hiring its first staff (initially part-time), including a Managing Director and several other paid and voluntary roles - apply here or refer someone here for a $100 bonus. 

Overview

Effective Altruism for Jews is a global community of Jews coming together to help tackle the world’s most pressing problems effectively and share EA ideas within our Jewish communities. 

For the past year, our founding members have been volunteering their time to build the organisation from scratch and secure initial funding. Now we're looking to grow our team with our first ever paid staff (part-time) and exciting new volunteer positions, taking us to the next level by developing exciting programs and building deeper connections with Jewish and EA communities around the world. 

By joining the team, you will have the opportunity to shape a young, growing organisation, build your skills, and contribute to the project of effective altruism!

This is hilarious; I was literally thinking yesterday that we should be reaching out to the Orthodox/Modern Orthodox Jewish community, and was going to write a post on that today! Happy to know this already exists :)

May I ask what your long-term plans are?

Hi Yitz! Our long term plan -- a very high level -- is to (1) do outreach to Jewish communities and spread EA ideas to those communities, and (2) to build a community of Jews involved in EA.  We currently have a number of projects in the works including EA fellowships and materials aimed at different Jewish audiences (including different denominations as well as demographics such as for b'nai mitzvah age Jews).  I'll send you a DM with more info and my calendly if you'd like to learn more!
