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.

Join PJ Library in the UK and Sephardi Voices UK to hear stories of culture, values and Judaism passed from generation to generation.

British Jewry is built on memories, traditions and stories of the past. Join us as we hear from two inspiring grandparents, Doreen Dangoor and Elie Chilton in conversation with Lauren Hamburger (Director, PJ Library in the UK). Doreen and Elie will talk about their Iraqi and Egyptian upbringing, their journey to the UK and how they impart their traditions to the next generation.

PJ Library (PJ for pyjamas!) gift high-quality Jewish books to families with children from birth to 8 years old every month. The award-winning, cross-communal books celebrate Jewish culture, values and traditions through a wide range of stories and beautiful illustrations. PJ Library books are posted directly to children so they can build their own Jewish bedtime libraries.

Sephardi Voices UK was founded with the mission to record and capture the experiences of the Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews from the Middle East, North Africa and Iran who settled in the UK. Their filmed interviews document the fascinating history, rich culture and vibrant traditions of the communities our interviewees left behind.

Sephardi Voices UK work allows the families of the interviewees to connect with their past, whilst simultaneously allowing both researchers and members of the general public a window into the histories of these unique communities.

Please note: email addresses will be shared with both organisations.
