70 Faces Media is a not-for-profit digital media company that aspires to connect as many people as possible to all sides of the unfolding Jewish story.
We are inspired by the Jewish story’s power to provide deep personal meaning, sustain a people and improve the world. Our brands collectively serve as a virtual town square, highlighting and hosting a multitude of voices and conversations as we inform people about Jewish news, history, traditions, values, entertainment and culture. We reach people wherever they are in their lives, level of Jewish knowledge and sense of Jewish identity. We connect people and communities in North America, Israel and around the globe. Through these efforts, we provide a unique platform for people to identify with the Jewish story and take part in renewing it for our time.
We were born through the groundbreaking merger of a storied news agency and an Internet start-up. Founded in 1917, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) has for nearly a century been reporting on developments impacting Jews and Jewish communities in North America, Israel and around the world. MyJewishLearning, Inc. was created in 2002 to leverage the internet and other new media to spread knowledge of Jewish religion, history, values, traditions and culture in a manner that is meaningful and accessible to people of all backgrounds, empowering them to navigate Jewish life with confidence and creativity.
Despite the years and life situations that separated JTA’s founder, 25-year-old journalist Jacob Landau, and MyJewishLearning’s founder, 74-year-old philanthropist Edgar Bronfman, both men were pioneers, motivated by a commitment to their people and a belief in the power of information. We at 70 Faces Media are proud and excited to build on their legacies, through the creation of media that engages, informs and connects the Jewish world.
