How We Do It
Jspace is dedicated to fighting misleading information by offering accurate, non-biased and up to date content about the state of Israel and worldly Jewish affairs via our online newspaper.
JspaceNews.com generates 1.5 million page views a month with over 650,000 unique visitors a month. We reach a wide demographic of Jews and non-Jews alike, helping to spread positive, accurate news about Israel and the Diaspora. Our focus includes, but is not limited to: Israeli advances in science, medicine and technology, including cancer research and clean energy strides; Israeli and Jewish achievements, including our high ratio of Nobel laureates and distinguished honors; Middle East politics, including Israel’s civil rights accomplishments and its constant threats from regimes in Gaza, Iran, Lebanon and beyond; and human interest stories, relating first person tales from the IDF as well as citizens living on the ground in Israel. Jspace News is a platform that supports the Jewish community at large while educating the rest of the world with non-biased information about Israel and the Jewish people.
Jspace Events brings together young Jewish professionals to interact face-to-face offline. Jspace partners up with many Jewish organizations to centralize the community in each city by sharing information and ideas. Our events team has formed strong relationships with Jewish organizations to foster connections between international groups that might not otherwise have exposure to one another. Jspace has worked with some of the most revered Jewish organizations, including Yad Vashem, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, JNF and the ADL. Mayor Michael Bloomberg served as the key speaker at our Israel’s 65th Independence Day party in NYC.
Events like these are crucial to preserving Jewish identity among a millennial generation that is often lacking that connection. The Taglit-Birthright program has found young Jewish adults that return home from their trips to Israel often participate at higher rates in local Jewish happenings, but those numbers drop off eventually. By organizing events we bring this fundamental demographic together to preserve identity.
Jspace has built an incredibly strong social media presence. Our Facebook followers number over 600,000, a figure that is constantly growing, and our posts have an average reach of over 2 million a week. Our followers are made up of passionate Israel supporters who engage in online conversation, opening a real dialogue and sharing our content within their own communities. In this way, our message is spread even further, which is a crucial step, as media bias against Israel and anti-Semitic rhetoric moves online. When Israel is under attack, whether by terrorist cells in the Middle East or virtual slander online, social media is an opportunity to quickly spread accurate information.
