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!

UAE’s Jews to Affiliate with World Body

The Jewish Council of the Emirates (JCE), the recognized representative body of Jews living in the United Arab Emirates, announced on Thursday its intention to formally affiliate itself with the World Jewish Congress. The move is expected to be finalized at the next WJC Plenary Assembly, scheduled for May 2021. By aligning itself with the international federation, the JCE will be joining over 100 similar Jewish communities from across the globe, who together work to protect Jewish heritage and culture. The decision comes precisely one month after Israel and the UAE agreed to normalize their relations in the American-brokered Abraham Accord. Ross Kriel, president of the JCE, said on Thursday he was “deeply honored to have joined” the WJC and felt “very moved about what this means for peace – for the prospect of moving forward and finally resolving issues for other Muslim monarchies to join in and follow the lead of the UAE.”
