We envision a free international press that whether reporting on Israel’s successes or its failures, it takes a nuanced perspective on Israel, based on a deep understanding of its history, society, geostrategic environment, threats and challenges.
JPC offers journalists access to Israeli decision-makers and experts, briefings and press tours, professional facilities, friendly staff, amicable social atmosphere and great cuisine at its Touro Restaurant – all in the most beautiful location in Jerusalem
JPC hosts professional delegations of journalists who cover Israel in areas such as economy, hi-tech, cinema, science, food and more. The Club runs a variety of programs, including meetings with decision-makers and experts, guided tours, participation in international conferences and festivals, and home hospitality.
JPC offers aspiring journalists two programs: a 10-day professional press tour; and a 3-month fellowship program. These programs introduce participants to Israel’s geostrategic challenges and opportunities, along with its culture, industry, and society, from a professional journalistic point of view.
JPC promotes press freedom and freedom of expression through all of its activities, including a bi-annual international conference and an annual international youth cartoon competition.
We work with journalists worldwide, in 6 continents and 43 countries
