About Us

Fuente Latina (FL) is the only organization active today that breaks down geographical, cultural and linguistic barriers for Spanish speaking media covering Israel, the Jewish world and the Middle East. FL empowers journalists and influencers with information and access to newsmakers to facilitate accurate coverage in real time.

With more than half a billion people around the world consuming news in Spanish today, and as Hispanics continue their trajectory as the fastest growing minority in the U.S., media matters like never before.

Fuente Latina is strictly a non-profit, non-governmental organization. We embrace a nonpartisan approach to our work and strongly believe in letting the facts speak for themselves.

We are not a news agency. Fuente Latina is a non-profit media organization.

Fuente Latina is headquartered in Miami with offices in Jerusalem, Madrid and Los Angeles.

Leah Soibel established Fuente Latina from the kitchen of her tiny Jerusalem apartment in 2012 in response to the growing demand by Hispanic journalists for factual information about Israel and access to newsmakers in their language and in real time.

FL strongly believes in the importance of delivering impactful work that leaves a footprint on the media landscape. To date, Fuente Latina’s work has yielded two TV Emmy wins for major U.S. Spanish language networks as well as several nominations. Other accolades stemming from our work include a prestigious Associated Press Broadcasting Award for a South Florida TV correspondent.
