Press Club of Jerusalem
The Jerusalem Press Club (JPC) is a private Press Club which offers foreign correspondents everything they need: Access to Israeli decision-makers and experts, great content, top professional facilities, friendly staff, amicable social atmosphere and great cuisine at the Press Club’s Touro Restaurant – all in the most beautiful location in Jerusalem, Mishkenot Sha’ananim.
The Press Club was founded in order to be the go-to place for the foreign press based in Israel and for visiting journalists. The Press Club aspires to present the array of issues, speakers, voices and places that Israel has to offer. While the Press Club functions as the main center for journalists based in Israel, it also hosts missions of visiting journalists who cover areas where Israel has excelled: Film, hi-tech, science, music, literature and more. Thinking about the next generation of journalists, the Jerusalem Press Club offers a variety of programs to graduate journalism schools. A strong champion of press freedom, the Press Club has initiated the bi-annual International Conference on the Freedom of the Press, and through its Cartoon-Criticism-Care competition, it has been encouraging youth to express themselves artistically on current issues.
