We are hiring!

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.

EMET provides research and analysis which challenges misrepresentations and never bows to political correctness. EMET develops close working relationships with Congress members, and provides them with the information and analysis they need, while combating efforts by other interest groups to influence Congress with misrepresentations about Israel and the Middle East.

EMET provides fact-based briefings to Congress members, their staff and the general public.
