Welcome to The Jerusalem Herald
An unsupportable and dangerous status quo confronts Jews in Israel today, as we face challenges from within and without.
The mainstream media promotes views that rarely reflect the interests and goals of the Jewish people in their homeland, and active campaigns engineered by Israel’s enemies present erroneous and misleading information as fact to the world. Non-mainstream opinion is frequently delegitimized by the media and the state establishment and forcibly excluded from the public discourse, leading to dangerous narrow thinking.
The world’s pro-Israel community needs invigorating discourse and energizing thinking regarding the future of Israel as the Jewish homeland. The Jewish community needs a viable medium to discuss Jewish life and the Jewish state in all its complexity.
For this reason, we launched The Jerusalem Herald — a professional English-language media website presenting analysis and commentary from a Jewish nationalist religious perspective.
The Jerusalem Herald's logo incorporates the design of the Choshen (priestly breastplate) worn by the Kohen Gadol (High Priest) in Biblical times. The 12 jewels of the Choshen represent the 12 tribes of the Jewish People — in other words, the entire nation.
In ancient times, the nation would consult the Urim and Tumim of the Choshen for divine guidance from G-d about how to successfully deal with the burning questions of the day. This symbolizes the mission of The Jerusalem Herald to analyze current events and try to figure out what we as Jews should do according to G-d's will.
Our coverage focuses on five news areas:
Today’s mainstream media marginalizes alternative thinking regarding these areas relative to Israel’s future. An authentic Jewish voice is needed to critically question the management of the state, and to stimulate the stagnant Israeli public to formulate new ideas concerning the challenges facing Israel.
The Jerusalem Herald provides the digital platform for original thinkers to engage in vital discourse, while adhering to the highest standards of editorial quality. This distinguishes us from other forums, as does our focus on analysis and commentary as opposed to standard reporting, which allows us to explore issues in more depth and to develop new ideas.
