Shmuel Rosner is a senior fellow at The Jewish People Policy Institute, a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times, the Senior Political Editor for the Jewish Journal, a columnist for Israel’s Maariv, and the chief non-fiction editor for Israel’s largest Publishing House, Kinneret-Zmora-Dvir.
He was previously a columnist for The Jerusalem Post and Chief U.S. Correspondent and Head of the News Division and Head of the Features Division for the Israeli daily Haaretz. He has been published in many magazines, including Foreign Policy, Commentary, The New Republic, The Jewish Review of Books, and more.
I visited Shmuel on a hot summer day in his Tel Aviv home. We discussed his new book Israeli Judaism, are Israeli Jews becoming more religious or secular, American Israeli Jewish relations, the Reform movement in Israel and much more.
