David Horovitz, the editor-in-chief of the Times of Israel, will speak at Hendrix tonight at 7 p.m. The lecture, titled "Isreal’s place in the new, unstable Middle East," will take place at Worsham Hall South at the Student Life and Technology Center. Admission is free, and a reception will follow. Horovitz’s appearance is sponsored by the Crain-Maling Center of Jewish Culture.

Horovitz is the Founding Editor of The Times of Israel, the Jerusalem-based current affairs website launched in February of 2012. Prior to that, Horovitz served for seven years as Editor-in-Chief of The Jerusalem Post, Israel’s English-language daily. While at The Jerusalem Post he used his "Editor’s Notes" column to promote tolerance and to repeatedly urge the Israeli leadership to devote more attention to the struggle for Israeli legitimacy on "the second battlefield" — in the media, the legal arena, and in diplomatic forums. Horovitz was previously editor and publisher of the award-winning newsmagazine The Jerusalem Report and has written for The New York Times and Los Angeles Times. He is a frequent guest on CNN, the BBC, Fox News, NPR, and other television and radio entities.
