This Hanukkah Give the Gift of Truth

The Media Line led twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Iraqi Kurdistan: A Land of Jewish Heritage, and Potential Reconciliation

Iraqi Kurdistan: A Land of Jewish Heritage, and Potential Reconciliation

Sun, Aug 29, 2021 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM Central European Summer Time (UTC+2)

Tickets ($18) here.

Join us for a dynamic interactive journey through the rich heritage of the Jews of Kurdistan.

About this event

From the Neo-Assyrian era to the present day, learn about the Jews from Kurdistan and their enduring history. Today, there are hundreds of thousands of Jews from Kurdistan who look to their ancestral fatherland – and its enduring Jewish heritage sites – with affection, interest, and curiosity. For some, the support has even become political, and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq is celebrated as one of the most durable, stable, tolerant, and secure governments in the entire Middle East. Learn more about Kurdistan, its Jewish heritage, and the present-day efforts to support Jewish expression.

With your contribution you will also be donating to the “Foundation of Ours”, which supports Jewish expression in the Kurdistan Region, and provides platforms for reconciliation and coexistence between all communities.
