The media landscape in Israel is diverse and competitive, with various TV channels, print newspapers, and technology-focused media outlets. It's important to choose the right outlet, angle, and journalist for a story to be successful with PR in Israel.

He emphasizes the need for "transcreation," not just translation of messages to ensure they are contextually relevant and will resonate with the Israeli audience. He also highlights the challenges of balancing PR decisions with business demands and the need for flexibility in strategy.
