This Thanksgiving, we are thankful for you, our supporters. We are thankful for President Obama and Secretary Kerry in their efforts to broker peace for Israel. And we are thankful to be able to continue the critical work we do.

This Thanksgiving however, we could use a little less stuffing. Instead of being overwhelmed by the enormous amount of news that we are all bombarded with, let us send you a quick Nosh that gives you all you need to know about what is going on in the Middle East. That's right, a News Nosh.

You want to find out what is happening with the peace negotiations; you want straight talk on Iran; you want the breaking news on the unconscionable expansion of settlements. You can surf the web for Israeli news sites, struggle with Hebrew and pop-up ads, or you can let APN do the work for you. Every day. For free. Sign up here.

News Nosh arrives "on your doorstep" (in your inbox) first thing in the morning for you to nibble on with your morning coffee. If you want to keep up with what's happening in Israel, there's no better way to do it than with APN's News Nosh. APN offers you the top Israeli news aggregator, for free.
