Program Manager, Community Security - San Francisco

Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund San Francisco CA

REPORTS TO: Director of Community Security
At the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund (the Federation), we envision diverse, dynamic Bay Area Jewish communities, deeply engaged in Jewish life and doing good locally, in Israel, and around the world. We create opportunities for people in the Bay Area to connect with and contribute to their communities. Our work is guided by the timeless Jewish values of kehilla (community), tzedakah (giving with just intention), tzedek (pursuing justice), and tikkun olam (repairing the world). 
The Federation leads Jewish community security efforts throughout the Bay Area and beyond, from Mendocino to Santa Cruz and from San Francisco to Tahoe. The Community Security Program works to help all Jewish organizations achieve specific milestones for staff training, physical improvements, emergency planning, and relationships with law enforcement. The team works hand-in-hand with clergy, professional staff, and lay leadership to facilitate an array of services and supports, including training webinars, grant application guidance, site assessments, and security consultations tailored to the specific needs of each organization. Our efforts have translated into increased funding for security improvements, better preparedness and confidence, and the adoption of best practices.
The Program Manager will function as the hub for all activities and external communications relating to the Community Security Program. This position will be responsible for the daily management of program activities and will coordinate team outreach to Jewish organizations across Northern California. This role offers the opportunity to work directly with a diverse group of organizations, to play a key role in the implementation of critical and high-impact work, to establish and refine new systems, and to contribute and learn as part of a team. The successful candidate will have strong attention to detail and communicate effectively with individuals and large groups both verbally and in writing. The Federation is seeking a highly motivated self-starter with strong organizational skills and experience managing complex projects. Direct experience in the field of security is a plus, but not required.
