David Horovitz is the founding editor of The Times of Israel, which in recent months has been the fastest-growing English-language news website in the world. The Times of Israel, which provides independent, non-partisan coverage of Israel, the region and the Jewish world, also publishes in Hebrew, French, Arabic and Persian.
Horovitz was previously editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post (from 2004-2011). Before that, he was editor and publisher of the award-winning newsmagazine The Jerusalem Report. In 2014, he was awarded Bnai Brith’s lifetime achievement journalism award.
Horovitz has written from Israel for newspapers around the world, and is a frequent interviewee on CNN, the BBC, Sky, and other TV and radio stations.
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. In 2020, he interviewed Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv.
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 US by Knopf.
