The Jewish Federation of Pinellas and Pasco Counties will offer a first-of-its-kind breakfast for local media representatives to connect them to key leaders in the community and provide them with resources on Jewish life, reporting on Israel, and facts about the local community that will supplement their journalistic work.
The meeting will be held on August 23 from 8:00 - 9:00 a.m. in the Federation’s Community Room. The event is open to all; specific invitations will include all reporters, editors, bloggers, and calendar managers who maintain mainstream and localized news sources.
Each participant will have the opportunity to meet individuals from across the Jewish community who serve as local experts on Jewish custom, Israeli politics, antisemitism, and Jewish life as well as will receive a compact and comprehensive guide to these topics with contact information, Jewish calendar details, and key terms to use (and avoid) when reporting on Jewish issues.
Those interested in attending can register online after August 6 at www.jewishpinellas.org.
