The Jerusalem Report is a fortnightly print and online newsmagazine that covers political and social issues in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world.

Founded as an independent weekly publication in 1990, it now is under the corporate umbrella of The Jerusalem Post Group. It remains editorially independent of The Jerusalem Post and the other publications in this group. The magazine offers political analysis, interviews with leading personalities and comments on Israel's cultural scene. The magazine's editorial slant is viewed as "center left."[1]

The Jerusalem Report was founded in 1990 by Hirsh Goodman, who was editor in chief and publisher for nine years.[2] David Horovitz was editor in chief from 1998 to 2004. Sharon Ashley took over in 2004 until 2006.[3] Eetta Prince Gibson served in the position until 2012 and was replaced by Matthew Kalman, who held the position for six months. Kalman was followed by Avi Hoffmann (June - December 2012) and in December 2012, Ilan Evyatar was appointed editor in chief.[4]

In 2000, noted U.S. journalist Jeffrey Goldberg referred to The Jerusalem Report as "the best periodical published in Israel, in English or Hebrew. The Jerusalem Report is a beacon of professionalism and sobriety in a press culture that sometimes resembles the National Hockey League...."[5]

In 2004 The Report won the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee's Boris Smolar award for coverage of the Jewish World.[6]


The Jerusalem Report is owned by Mirkaei Tikshoret Ltd., a Tel Aviv-based newspaper publisher. They purchased it from Conrad Black's Hollinger newspaper group in 2004.

It had been funded initially by five Jewish philanthropists, including Charles Bronfman, and was sold in 1998 to the Hollinger newspaper chain, which had previously purchased the Jerusalem Post newspaper.[7][8] When Post owner Hollinger purchased the Report, “it was expected that the two English-language publications would merge their administrative, advertising, and circulation departments while remaining independent editorially,”[9] [10]
