Day two of intern orientation came and went – surprisingly smoothly and I don’t think we’ve lost any interns yet!
Education, exhibition and development interns started the day with Past Perfect training from Jobi.
Jennifer oriented her interns, David and Leslie, to the archives.
The other collections interns began work on the Jewish Times photograph collection.
After lunch the interns visited our exhibitions!
It’s been a pretty exhausting 2 days for everyone and the summer is just beginning!

Ok, maybe it’s not THAT scary – but there sure are a lot of them this summer! We’ve spent the last 2 days deep in orientation land, getting our 13 (that’s right, THIRTEEN) summer interns ready for 10 weeks of museum work.
The day began with introductions and, of course, Rules & Regulations!
Then it was on to the tour... from Parking Lot to Loading Dock...
... and Library to Lobby.
And then it was time to descend...
...for Object Handling with Jobi! (What, was that ominous or something?)
Orientation Day One closed out with a digital photography workshop led by the ever-fabulous Elena. Interns got a chance to try out there new skills with some object photography.
Thus ended day one of intern orientation! Come back tomorrow for a peak at day two!
