The Media Line led over 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.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

Erev Rosh Hashanah

The gates are open: it is time to emerge gracefully

Monday, September 6 @ 7 pm: This service, the first gate of renewal, invites us to celebrate the creation of the world and all its possibilities. It is the first step in our spiritual journey. As individuals in community, we center ourselves in the mystery of continuous creation. Our celebration strengthens us so that we are ready to explore the larger questions of purpose and honest self-evaluation.

Rosh Hashanah Morning

As we renew our lives in a community of love, what is essential? What is important?

Tuesday, September 7 @ 10:30am: Pray with us in the essential elements of the Shacharit morning service and Musaf, which includes the special High Holy Day liturgy. Let the music and chant resonate deeply within. Let it open the spaces that have been constricted for so long. We pass through this next gate together, opening to what is possible in celebration of the New Year.
