Find the tools and learn the skills to support Israel.
CJP and the Israeli American Council (IAC) are partnering to open The Boston Media Room in early 2017. This is a global online community that will work in real time to positively influence public discourse and combat efforts to delegitimize the State of Israel.
The Media Room will be staffed by students and volunteers who have received specialized training in messaging and online advocacy. As soon as our doors open, the Boston community will be invited to drop in, learn advocacy and social media skills, and work with other communities around the world to grow support for Israel.
What is The Boston Media Room?
The idea for The Media Room was originally developed by students at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya, an educational effort that aims to train the future leaders of the State of Israel.
In response to negative media portrayals of Israel during the 2012 and 2014 operations between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, the IDC students set up a "situation room" training platform to expose media bias, report incitement, and share pro-Israel content. Boston is the first city outside of Israel to take this training platform and open its own media training center. The Media Room is an independent and non-partisan, pro-Israel effort.
What is a Media Room Ambassador?
Media Room Ambassadors are students and adult mentors who are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and tools to positively influence public discourse by developing pro-Israel social media campaigns.
