Jobs - DEADLINE :  
Special Event and Program Manager




Special Event and Program Manager

Department:      External Relations

Schedule:            Part-Time (15-20 hours per week)


The special event and program manager seeks to create a more inclusive society through the exploration and celebration of Jewish history and culture, as well as deepening an understanding for other faiths and cultures by looking through the lens of the Jewish value “respect for all humanity”. Committed to education, with excellent organization and coordination skills, this charismatic and personable go-getter will join the external relations team on a part time basis to conceptualize, plan, and introduce public programs.


  • Working with supervisor and collaboration partners to identify engaging topics connected to the museum, its exhibitions and mission;
  • Finding dynamic, qualified speakers to present academic lectures, book talks, interactive workshops, panel discussions, and more;
  • Coordinating all details of an online zoom program (in-person event coordination may come at a later date) – from early program ideation to writing program descriptions, to meeting deadlines for marketing needs, to collecting speaker bios for program introductions, to testing tech and registration functionality, to welcoming guests and speakers during programs, to sending thank you communications after the program ends.


Experience working in a nonprofit or educational setting is required, in addition to being able to take an idea and turn it into a program with minimal “hands-on” supervision, as many staff members continue to work remotely. Self-starter, goal-achiever, deadline-driven, people-person, with significant coordination and organizational skills.


The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage introduces visitors to the beauty and diversity of that heritage in the context of the American experience. It promotes an understanding of Jewish history, religion, and culture and builds bridges of appreciation, tolerance, and understanding with those of other religions, races, cultures, and ethnic backgrounds, serving as an educational resource for Northeast Ohio’s Jewish and general communities.
