IM: Israel Messenger

iM: Israel Messenger is a monthly newspaper connecting American Jewish teens to Israel with engaging and real stories about Israeli life and culture.

Written in English, it is produced jointly with The Jerusalem Post, Israel’s largest English daily newspaper, and its contents will stress modern Israel and its diverse population. iM: Israel Messenger will offer our high school students a chance to relate and feel closer to their Israeli peers.

Articles will be written especially for iM by Jerusalem Post writers, and each issue will also contain an article written by a student reporter. There will be a Student Editorial Board involved in many aspects of the paper -- writing, research and sales. Students who participate will receive a letter of recommendation from The Jerusalem Post and Jewish National Fund.
Scheduled to officially launch in October 2006, iM will offer two free 8-page sample editions -- one for Spring 2006, and one for Summer 2006 to be distributed at the JCC Maccabi games, and then to classrooms and youth groups in September. Starting in October 2006, iM will provide subscribers with 24 pages of relevant stories on topics ranging from pop culture to politics written with teens in mind. Nine monthly editions will be published yearly.
