 For more than a decade, the annual media luncheon has brought Israel’s story to the media through Israeli dignitaries and journalists. It is part of JCRC/AJC’s ongoing work to help area reporters understand Israel and the situation in the Middle East, and to reinforce JCRC/AJC’s role  as the media relations agency of the Detroit Jewish community. The program was made possible through the generous support of former JCRC officer Linda Finkel and her husband, Bob Finkel.
