A fair news source?

The Times of Israel is an Israeli multi-language online newspaper that was launched in 2012. It was co-founded by Israeli journalist David Horovitz, who is also the founding editor, and American billionaire investor Seth Klarman.[1] Based in Jerusalem, it "documents developments in Israel, the Middle East and around the Jewish world."[2] Along with its original English site, The Times of Israel publishes in Hebrew (via its own edition, Zman Yisrael), Arabic, French, and Persian. In addition to publishing news reports and analysis, the website hosts a multi-author blog platform.[3]

In February 2014, two years after its launch, The Times of Israel claimed a readership of two million.[4] In 2017, readership increased to 3.5 million unique monthly users.[5] By 2021, the paper had on average over nine million unique users each month and over 35 million monthly page views, while the paper's blog platform had 9,000 active bloggers.[6][7]

The Times of Israel was launched in February 2012. Its co-founders are journalist David Horovitz,[8][9] and American billionaire Seth Klarman, founder of the Baupost Group and chairman of The David Project. Klarman is the chairman of the website.[10]

Several Times of Israel editors had previously worked for the Haaretz English edition, including Joshua Davidovich and Raphael Ahren, and former Haaretz Arab affairs correspondent Avi Issacharoff – co-creator of the popular Israeli television series Fauda – joined as its Middle East analyst.[11] Amanda Borschel-Dan, who was the Magazine Editor of The Jerusalem Post, is currently The Times of Israel's Deputy Editor, responsible for the Jewish world and archaeology. She also hosts the paper's weekly podcast.
