With sincere love and admiration for Israel and the Jewish people,

Featured Grantee: Fuente Latina
Spanish is the world, with more than 570 million people fluent speakers. Yet Israel has few journalists for Spanish-speaking outlets, and even fewer Spanish-language journalists from the Americas. This meant hundreds of millions of people learned about current events in Israel from second-hand sources, with little context.
In 2012, Fuente Latina changed this. With headquarters in Miami and offices in Jerusalem and Madrid, Fuente Latina is the only organization that works with international Latino media in their language and in real time.
The organization provides journalists with translations, press kits, and fact sheets; facilitates interviews with important news figures; provides logistical assistance for photographers, cameramen, and producers on the ground in Israel, and takes journalists to the Jewish State to provide context and connections for reporters covering the Middle East. 
Thanks to Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation's support, Fuente Latina recently took six prominent Spanish-language journalists from the West Coast to Israel. Since returning home, these reporters have written accurate stories about Israel that reach millions. Fuente Latina’s follow up programming ensures that these journalists remained engage and produce balanced stories important to Israel in the long term.
Before and when news breaks, Fuente Latina breaks down geographical, cultural and linguistic barriers to help Spanish-speaking media outlets around the world see the Israel that we know and love—a light unto nations.
