RKYHS Students Hear From Jerusalem Post Editor-in-Chief

RKYHS had their first SEED speaker of 2024, welcoming Avi Mayer, recent editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post. Through the weekly SEED (Student Enrichment, Education and Development) Program, RKYHS students hear new perspectives on a wide range of topics from accomplished and broad-thinking professionals.

Mayer spoke about his post at the helm of the most-widely read English newspaper in Israel, shared insights about the current media landscape, and the pressures of reporting swiftly and accurately in a time of war. He described the current media landscape for reporting about Israel and in particular since October 7, the responsibility of the media, maintaining journalistic integrity and the difference between opinion vs. fact when reporting. Mayer offered advice on how to be an educated consumer of news when they are constantly inundated from news outlets and social media and expressed to students how to speak up against information that they read that isn’t factual.
