Sinai on The Hill presents students with an opportunity to take their leadership skills to a completely new level. It is designed as a two part program:
The Washington, DC internship is combined with the Sinai Retreats program in order to provide a summer of turbocharged leadership activity. The study program teaches ethics and moral values and the Capitol Hill internship offers an experience in practical activism.
Every year, thousands of students from across the U.S. apply for summer internships in our nation’s capital. Opportunities for Capitol Hill interns range from working directly with senators and congressmen to learning from the leadership of elite lobbying groups such as AIPAC and other prominent advocacy organizations. Capitol Hill internships are highly exclusive and present a rare opportunity to brush shoulders with some of the nation’s most powerful leaders. Sinai on The Hill has been able to secure a limited number (less than 25) of slots.
Most internships run between 4-6 weeks, depending on the congressional office. There are two possible schedules available:
- Begin soon after the conclusion of the school term – usually the third week in May and runs through June. The Washington internship program is followed by a 2 week Jewish study program (please see Sinai Retreats for dates and information).
- Begin at the start of July and run through mid-August. Participants who select this option attend Sinai Retreats following their experience in Washington.
