NEW YORK (May. 4)
Haviva Krasner, a senior at the Ramaz Upper School, is a journalism intern at the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. The internship is part of her work-study senior project, which began last month and lasts until graduation in June. By combining attendance to a smaller number of classes with work at an outside job, the Ramaz administration attempts to provide students with experience at working in the “real world.”
For her work-study project, Krasner, 18, chose an internship at JTA because of her interest in journalism, political issues as they affect the Jewish world, and ongoing developments in the Jewish community. She said she felt there is “a great deal of interesting news breaking in the Jewish world, and there are many controversial subjects to be covered.”
Krasner has worked on her school newspaper, the “Ram Page,” for the past four years and has been Editor-in-Chief during her senior year. After graduating in June, she will continue at JTA in its summer intern program covering all aspects of Jewish news.
