An HonestReporting Project

David Horovitz


David Horovitz is the founding editor of The Times of Israel, the Jerusalem-based current affairs website that launched in February 2012. The Times of Israel, which provides independent coverage of Israel, the region, and the Jewish world, is drawing a rapidly growing readership and has been welcomed for its engaging, fair-minded journalism, innovative blend of content, and elegant website design.

Horovitz stepped down in the summer of 2011 as editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post, Israel's English-language daily. He was previously editor and publisher of the award-winning news magazine The Jerusalem Report, and has written from Israel for newspapers around the world, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Irish Times, and The Independent (London). He is a frequent interviewee on CNN, the BBC, Sky, Fox News, NPR, and other TV and radio stations.

Horovitz lectures worldwide on Israeli current affairs, regularly giving the introductory briefing on Israel to Congressional delegations brought to Israel under the aegis of AIPAC. He has conducted landmark interviews with a succession of Israeli and international figures, including all of Israel's recent prime ministers, Presidents Barack Obama and George Bush, as well as Tony Blair, Vladimir Putin, and to the particular delight of his children, Paul McCartney.

A graduate of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, David was profiled in the university's 90th anniversary President's Report as the graduate who had most impacted Israel's reality in the field of media, alongside Dorit Beinisch (judiciary), Yuval Steinitz (the legislature), and other Israeli luminaries. Horovitz immigrated to Israel from London in 1983 and did his army reserve service in the Educational Corps. He is married to Lisa and they have three children.
