The Briefing Room

An insider access to the most current geopolitical analysis from across the Arab world.

In October 2021, ITME launched an exciting initiative in cooperation with Jeffrey Blavatt, the Director of the Insight Israel Forum and the Director of Israel and Overseas at The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.

Each Briefing Room focuses on a specific arena in the Middle East that is in the media headlines. The program provides insights, perspectives, and resources not covered in the Western Media. During the sessions, Avi provides a general background and update on the specific topic to “build the database.” Avi is then joined by a guest speaker from the region who provides additional authentic insider perspectives.
