The Jerusalem Post is an Israeli daily English language broadsheet newspaper, founded on December 1, 1932, by Gershon Agron as The Palestine Post. The newspaper has a daily readership of about 50,000 which, whilst being low, is misleading because it is read by politicians and foreign journalists and so has a broader reach than other newspapers in Israel. The newspaper is viewed as having a right of center view on politics.
Currently, the Jerusalem Post is viewed as having a moderate right of center slant on news coverage, although left-wing columns are often featured on the editorial pages
As with other Israeli newspapers, the Jerusalem Post is published from Sunday to Friday, with no edition appearing on Saturday (the Jewish Sabbath) and Jewish religious holidays.
In print, the Jerusalem Post also publishes other editions geared for the local and foreign markets: a Christian Edition, French, 'International', as well as several kids and youth magazines. In 2007, it also started publishing a Hebrew-only business daily called The Business Post. The newspaper also maintains an online edition named jpost.com

The 'Post' now has an advertising slogan claiming that the 'best newspaper in Israel(Where the principal language is Hebrew) is in English.' In my judgment though I do not particularly like this kind of 'fluff' their claim is true.
The 'Post 'is now edited by David Horowitz, the former editor of 'Jerusalem Report'. He has in my opinion and to my surprise done an outstanding job as editor. He has broadened and deepened the paper, introducing new writers. He has not as I thought he would, radically changed the political line of the paper so as to bring it in line with that of the former 'Jerusalem Report' or even worse 'Haaretz'.
The 'Post' has some truly outstanding writers and reporters. Judy Siegel is as fine a 'health- reporter' as I know. Arieh O'Sullivan is an excellent military correspondent. Caroline Glick is now , in my opinion, the strongest political writer on Israeli- Middle East subjects in the world. I may find her a bit gloomy at times, but she provides the information and analysis in a most forceful and convincing way. Evelyn Gordon covers judicial matters with great knowledge and insight. Barbara Sofer is one of the best columnists now writing on the broad range of issues in Israel and the Jewish world. There are many others of high quality.
Horowitz likes a divergence of views, and so brings in voices whose opinions are far indeed from mine. But there is 'balance'.
The paper has also recently greatly improved its domestic coverage.
Also I believe that its weekend Shabbat magazine has improved, especially the book- review section.
The Letters column is one of the most generous , and certainly most ably- edited. This by one of the Post's outstanding editor- writers Judy Montagu.
On the whole I would say anyone who truly cares about Jewish issues, and about Israel would do well to be a regular reader of the 'Post'.
