Director of Development

The Jewish Federation of Princeton Mercer Bucks (in central New Jersey) is seeking
a full-time Director of Development.

Princeton Mercer Bucks has a long history of commitment to our Jewish Community
at home and abroad. Albert Einstein, while at The Institute for Advanced Study, was
instrumental in the formation of the Princeton United Jewish Appeal as the means
for the local community to support the founding of the State of Israel. Ever since
that time, PMB has maintained a strong commitment to further the mission of our
Federation to be the umbrella organization that raises money for Jewish causes at
home, in Israel and the Diaspora. The Princeton area is an exciting and stimulating
place to work and live because of the presence of Princeton University, and a vibrant
Jewish community with many area synagogues.
