About EMET

Founded in 2005, The Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) is a Washington, D.C. based think tank and policy center with an unabashedly pro-America and pro-Israel stance. EMET (which means truth in Hebrew) prides itself on challenging the falsehoods and misrepresentations that abound in U.S. Middle East policy.

As a tax-exempt 501(C) 3 Non-Profit organization we work to educate policy-makers by providing pertinent information to senators and representatives to make informed decisions that will improve American security and the security of America’s ally, Israel. EMET earned its reputation as the “go-to-people” on Capitol Hill for Senators and Members of Congress who understand the importance of a strong and secure America, and a strong American-Israeli alliance against the forces of radical Islam and terror.

Our Mission

EMET is here to provide in-depth research and analyses which challenges misrepresentations about the Middle East and the nature of the US-Israel relationship. We develop close working relationships with Senators and Representatives and provide them with the up-to-date information and analysis they need while combating other interest groups that influence Congress with misrepresentations about Israel and the Middle East. We provide fact-based briefings to our nation’s policymakers, their staff, and the public-at-large.

What Makes Us Different


EMET provides weekly webinars to educate the general public, legislators, and their staff. We are on Capitol Hill virtually every day, meeting with Senators, Members of Congress, and their staffers to educate them on issues important to the security of the United States, Israel, and the Middle East. Our webinars, briefings, articles, and analyses never shy away from important topics, even if the facts point to conclusions that challenge long-held assumptions about how the Middle East operates.

Invest for Change

Investing in EMET means supporting a young organization, which is lean, intelligent, dedicated, and capable. Nothing is wasted on bloated bureaucracy or cushy Washington D.C. real estate. Supporting EMET means getting your contribution directly to the front lines of the War of Ideas, where it matters the most.

Bringing Issues To Light

EMET was educating Congress on the Palestinian Authority’s blatant and repeated violations of the Oslo Accords while other organizations were busy drawing up detailed maps of the next territory Israel should surrender in the failed “Land-for-Peace” paradigm. EMET was the first organization to confront the failure of the Department of Justice to investigate, indict and extradite Palestinian terrorists who have slain or injured American citizens, despite federal laws which demand such efforts. We continue to work with Congress to bring oversight to the DOJ, and ensure that all Americans receive the justice they deserve. Today, EMET briefs legislators and their staffers on contemporary geopolitical shifts in the Middle East including the Tehran-Riyadh Peace Agreement and what it means for Israel and the United States. Additionally, a large percentage of our time is allotted to initiatives combatting the rise of domestic antisemitism in the United States and other issues important to the Jewish community.

Our Newsletters

With our newsletters, containing a weekly summary of the events and opinions that are shaping the Middle East, EMET has the ability to reach over 11,000 subscribers, including hundreds of Congressional staff, government officials and embassy staff, along with thousands of activists’, community leaders and VIPs. One Congressman has called the EMET Memoranda “required reading” for his staff. This outreach capability enables EMET to deliver vital action alerts to a motivated and capable grassroots so that, to paraphrase President Reagan, “When we can’t make them see the light, we can make them feel the heat.”
