Israeli politics told directly

I joined The Times of Israel after many years covering US and Israeli politics for Hebrew language news outlets.

I believe that responsible coverage of Israeli politicians means presenting a 360-degree view of their words and deeds – not only conveying what is happening, but also what it means in the broader context of Israeli society and the region.

It’s hard to do because you can rarely take politicians at face value – you have to go the extra mile to present full context and try to overcome your own biases.

I’m proud of our work that tells the story of Israeli politics straight and complete. I believe that Israel is stronger and more democratic when professional journalists do this difficult job well.

Your support for our work by joining The Times of Israel community helps ensure that we can continue to do so.
