Are you the next face of Unpacked?

Unpacked has become synonymous with breaking down the complexities of Judaism and Israel. Our YouTube channel answers the big and small questions and delivers a deeper clearer understanding of the Jewish story.

And we’re looking for some hosts.

Hold up: This is not an acting position!

Our ideal host will collaborate with our producers, writers and publishing team to bring subjects surrounding Israel and Judaism to life on screen in a clear and compelling way and in their voice.

We are looking for two candidates – one for Jewish content and one for Israel content. 

Bonus if you can do both!

This is a part-time paid position that may lead to a full-time gig.
