About David Horovitz
David Horovitz is the founding editor of The Times of Israel, the Jerusalem-based current affairs website that launched in February 2012. Since its inception, it has provided independent coverage of Israel, the region and the Jewish world; drawing a rapidly growing readership and has been praised for its engaging, fair minded journalism and innovative blend of content.
Previously, Horovitz served as the Editor-in-Chief of The Jerusalem Post, Israel’s English language daily. In his almost seven years as editor, Horovitz moved The Jerusalem Post to the heart of the Israeli- Diaspora discourse, and helped build jpost.com into the world’s most-read English-language Jewish news website. He used his weekly “Editor’s Notes” column to promote intra-Jewish tolerance and to repeatedly urge the Israeli leadership to devote more attention to the struggle for Israeli legitimacy on “the second battlefield” – in the media, the legal arena and diplomatic forums.
Horovitz was previously editor and publisher of the award-winning newsmagazine The Jerusalem Report, and has written from Israel for newspapers around the world. He 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 AIEF, AIPAC’s sister foundation.
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 W. 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, he 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. Horovitz immigrated to Israel from London in 1983 and is married to Lisa. Together they have three children.
