Breakfast planned to engage, educate media about Jewish community

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.

The meeting will be held on Aug. 23 from 8 to 9 a.m. in the Federation’s Community Room at its Largo office.

“The idea for this meeting emerged from the data we found in the 2017 demographic study, which reported that 44 percent of our community members perceive a moderate or great deal of anti-Semitism in the region. By creating a strong working relationship with the media, we envision elevating the level of discourse to the point that this perception is decreased,” said Aliza Norstein, chair of the Jewish Community Relations Council.

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, anti-Semitism, 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 Aug. 6 at The Federation is located at 13191 Starkey Road, Suite 8. For more information, call (727) 530-3223.
