NJ Media Room: a non-partisan effort to build an organized online community of pro-Israel activists

What is the NJ Media Room?
A joint project of the IAC New Jersey with Act.IL in partnership with the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades, the NJ Media Room brings together pro-Israel activists for the goal of creating an online community that will act to create a positive influence on the international public opinion about the state of Israel via social media platforms.

This NJ media room is the second of several media rooms which will be opened across the U.S. These rooms will serve as physical spaces for training and activating volunteers to take part in local online pro-Israel activities.

The Media Room’s activities will be guided by volunteer mentors from our community who have domain expertise in research, journalism, technology and education. The mentors will guide an elite diplomacy team made up of Students Ambassadors (ages 16-24). The team will develop Israel awareness campaigns and will react to local anti-Israel and BDS activities. The team will also develop a network of activists from within the community who will take an active part in the Media Room’s efforts.

Want to get involved? Looking for a way to have more of an impact in helping Israel stand up to BDS, apartheid, and anti-Semitic rhetoric? Become a Mentor, Student Ambassador* or Community Volunteer!

The first team meeting will be held on May 2nd. In addition, on May 13-14 2017, the Media Room will have its kick-off training seminar for Mentors & Student Ambassadors.

The training will be led by the Act.IL professional team arriving from IDC Herzliya, Israel, and will prepare the NJ Media Room team to reach out and engage the community.

The Media Room team will start its community outreach on June 1st, with weekly workshops. Mentors and Ambassadors will be a part of weekly training sessions, community volunteers must commit to coming to one training, all other participation is on your own via Act.IL App and according to your time availability.

*Stipends are available to high school and college Students Ambassadors
