Who We Are

We publish every Thursday!

Who We Are: The Zionist Narrative is an online magazine publication whose primary mission is to showcase the people who support Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish State.

How We Do It: We publish articles about people who support Israel and discuss with them why they do. We publish a variety of interviews, personal narratives, short stories, poetry, and opinion pieces throughout our online platform.

Why We Do It: We seek to empower the Pro-Israel voice through the use of our legal freedom of expression and showcase the people who stand with Israel. By promoting the very people who support Israel, we are amplifying the solidarity movement that already exists on college campuses. Through our social media reach, we hope to enlighten our audiences with information that would otherwise be rejected or ignored in mainstream media, as well as illustrate just how strong the Pro-Israel voice today actually is, especially on college campuses.
