The Jerusalem Post (JPost) is an Israeli daily newspaper that appears in English and French. It was founded in 1932 under the name The Palestine Post by the American journalist Gerschon Agron . The first edition appeared on December 1, 1932. In 1950 the newspaper was renamed the Jerusalem Post . Daniel Dagan works for the newspaper . Ari Rath , who comes from Vienna, was editor-in-chief from 1975 to 1989.

The Jerusalem Post is also widely used outside of Israel. In Germany it appears weekly as an “International Edition”. It is offered on the Internet as an international version both as an English and a French e-paper .

Together with Haaretz, JPost is one of the highest quality journalistic print products in the country. After various changes of direction, among other things because of multiple changes of ownership and the associated editorial changes, the political orientation has leveled off on a conservative-liberal line in the new millennium, but without being affiliated with any particular party. Similar to the Haaretz, the newspaper attaches importance to pluralism of opinion. Apart from a certain consistency in the editorials and an almost entirely liberal economic section, articles and columns from various political directions can be found in the paper.
