Support Our Future Leaders

The Media Line is known for producing truthful, unbiased journalism and we are teaching future journalists to do the same. Through our signature Press and Policy Student Program, The Media Line provides an innovative opportunity for students to globalize their educational experience by connecting to an active news bureau in the Middle East, studying journalism and public policy under the mentorship of veteran journalists while earning academic credit.

These students will reshape how the world sees and understands the Middle East and, in turn, how the Middle East impacts our world. Your contribution will provide the next generation with the skills they need to uphold the highest standards of journalism and, in turn, educate our global society with integrity and respect.

Thank you!

Sirens Sound in Israel to Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Sirens Sound in Israel to Mark Holocaust Remembrance Day

Life in Israel came to a halt at 10 o’clock on Tuesday morning as air raid sirens marked Holocaust Remembrance Day, commemorating the 6 million Jewish victims of the Nazis. This year’s commemorations are more virtual in nature, with public movement and gatherings severely curtailed by Health Ministry directives aimed at fighting the coronavirus pandemic. For the first time in its history, the official opening ceremony at Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem, was pre-recorded, having been held in a plaza completely devoid of survivors and their families, dignitaries or guests. Most of the day’s programming and events have moved online, though this will be of little comfort to the estimated 150,000 remaining survivors in Israel. The youngest among them are in their late 70s, and with coronavirus restrictions being particularly harsh for the elderly, most will effectively be shut-ins, unable to find comfort in the hugs of loved ones and friends on this solemn day.
