Welcome to Feinstein

Welcome to the Feinstein Center Blog. Temple University’s Feinstein Center for American Jewish History works to inspire curiosity and interest in American Jewish History. I’m here to talk about the people that learn from Feinstein’s efforts. I’m one of those people. My name is Sigal Felber and I am interning with Feinstein this semester. I am new to Philadelphia, and when I thought about how to make my four month stint here meaningful, I knew that I wanted to intern with an organization that matched my interests.

A few weeks ago, leaders from across the Jewish professional world in Philadelphia gathered at Temple University’s Feinstein Center for American Jewish History to participate in a workshop about structuring effective and rewarding internships. I led the workshop, which I focused on the value of project-based internships. I also used the session as a way to familiarize those in attendance with Feinstein’s educational objectives.
