Executive Director

  • Leo Baeck Institute–New York | Berlin
  • New York, NY

This position has been filled.

The Leo Baeck Institute–New York | Berlin (LBI) invites nominations and applications for the position of Executive Director.

LBI is an archive and research library focused on preserving and promoting the history of German-speaking Jewry and its enduring value. Its extensive archives, 80,000-volume library, and art collection represent the most significant repository of primary source material and scholarship on Jewish life in Central Europe before the Holocaust. These materials reflect the Institute’s mission to preserve the documents, books, art, objects, and ephemera that reflect the history of German-speaking Jewry. The organization prides itself on adapting, expanding, and seizing opportunities as they arise. Most notably, LBI is now a digital archive, with nearly four million pages of documents from its collections (from rare renaissance books to the personal correspondence of luminaries and ordinary people alike to community histories and official documents) accessible in digital form. This digitization allows for the broad dissemination of information to scholars and the general population. Although support of scholarship remains a critical part of LBI’s mission, the Institute is eagerly expanding into the realm of public history, bringing its holdings closer to broader, non-academic audiences, in addition to its traditional constituencies. Based in New York and a founding partner of the Center for Jewish History, LBI also has a small office and staff in Berlin.

For best consideration, please send all nominations and applications to:

Shelly Weiss Storbeck, Global Education Practice Lead and Managing Director
Anne Koellhoffer, Senior Associate
