Requirements

Must have a minimum of 3 years hands on experience in either PR, Marketing or Sales. Must be authentically committed to spreading R. Aaron’s Torah. Dedication to the cause, beyond the

The ability to follow a lead to the end is critical for success in this role. Rabbi Aaron and the Mayberg Foundation can facilitate introductions with an impressive list of connections - but the Engagement Manager will be tasked with following up on every lead persistently and professionally until results are achieved.

This position is both inward facing (Ex: organizing content, preparing content calendar, etc.) and outward facing (Ex: managing publicity, building relationships with potential clients, helping
clients choose content for appearances, creating publicity, etc.). This position is a pilot hire with tremendous potential for growth, as Rabbi Aaron’s teachings gain widespread awareness. The Engagement Manager will join Rabbi Aaron on his journey to uplift the world through his books, classes and events - and ultimately create a global community of students.
