Why CJP

For more than 115 years, CJP has taken the lead in caring for the vulnerable, forging strong connections with Israel, and inspiring the next generation to embrace Jewish life and learning.

Our work is rooted in compassion and justice and is driven by innovation―and those values are reflected in our approach to our employees. We offer competitive salaries, comprehensive benefits and a collegial, family-friendly work environment for employees of all religious and ethnic backgrounds.

CJP’s offices are located in the financial district, one of the most desirable sections of downtown Boston.  And, what our employees find most appealing is the opportunity to collaborate with a team of equally talented and committed colleagues on work that truly changes lives for the better.
