Featuring Speaker David Horovitz, Founding Editor of The Times of Israel
About the speaker: 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 the fastest-growing news site in the Jewish world, and now also publishes in French, Arabic and Persian.
Horovitz was previously editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post (2004-2011). Before that, he was editor and publisher of the award-winning news magazine The Jerusalem Report.
He has written from Israel for newspapers around the world, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Irish Times and (London) Independent, and is a frequent interviewee on CNN, the BBC, Sky, Fox News, NPR and other TV and radio stations.
Horovitz lectures widely in Israel, the United States and Europe 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 (when he visited Israel as a candidate) and George Bush, as well as Tony Blair, Vladimir Putin and, to the particular delight of his children, Paul McCartney.
Horovitz is the author of 2004’s Still Life with Bombers: Israel in the Age of Terrorism, and 2000’s A Little Too Close to God: The Thrills and Panic of a Life in Israel, both published in the U.S. by Knopf. He edited and co-wrote The Jerusalem Report’s 1996 biography of Yitzhak Rabin, Shalom, Friend, which was published in 12 countries and won the U.S. National Jewish Book Award for Non-Fiction. He was the recipient of 2005’s JDC award for journalism. In 2014, he was awarded Bnai Brith’s lifetime achievement journalism award.
Horovitz immigrated to Israel from London in 1983. He is married to Lisa and they have three children.
