Sunday, February 12, 4 pm, Temple Israel

Free, RSVP required

Gil Hoffman was recently listed as one of “The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2022” by The Algemeiner, a global news destination published online and in print. The former chief political correspondent of The Jerusalem Post, Hoffman was appointed as executive director of Honest Reporting—an Israel-based NGO combating media disinformation about Israel and Zionism in May 2022.

Born and educated in the U.S., Hoffman graduated magna cum laude from Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism before moving to Israel where he spent 25 years as the leading English language political journalist.

“Strong democracies rely upon a sound press, and I believe my experience will help Honest Reporting assist journalists, as well as help people to better understand how to critically read the news as it relates to Israel,” Hoffman said upon taking up his latest post.

Join Hoffman at Temple Israel as he shares his thoughts and experiences of going beyond the headlines daily.

Presented by Temple Israel Endowment Fund and the Jewish Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, Simon Family JCC, and Community Partners’ 12th Annual Israel Today series.

Free and open to the community with RSVP required.
