Media Training and Media Awareness for Small Jewish Communities

Dear Friends,
     There is a terrific opportunity for a quality training program for members of your community interested in advocacy and community relations.  The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs is pleased to offer these two media-related workshops (please see the attached descriptions for more detail) to communities throughout Canada.
     You can learn more about these training sessions by watching this video from Jordan Kerbel, Deputy Director, Communications and Advocacy Training.
     The two sessions are:
1.      Media Training session for people that may be called upon to speak to the press. The course is designed to help train your spokespeople to be effective media communicators. The training provides them with the skills necessary to craft and communicate their key messages at every opportunity.
2.      Media Awareness program geared toward the community at large.  The workshop is designed to give people a sense of the inner workings of the media, how stories make it to print/air, how our community members can help shape those stories, and by extension, become better community advocates.
    These sessions are available without charge to your community as one of the valued services provided by the Centre. A minimum of 3-5 participants from each community are required for each session.  If you are interested please let me know as soon as possible, including approximately how many people from your community may participate.
    I hope that your community is interested in benefiting from these training programs.
