Times of Israel Marks 11 Years, Invites Readers to Support Its Journalism

The Times of Israel is celebrating 11 years of providing accurate and timely coverage of Israel and the Jewish world. As the country prepares to observe Memorial Day, the news outlet is inviting readers to support its work by joining The Times of Israel Community for as little as $6 a month.

Why this matters: The continued existence of independent and reliable news sources like The Times of Israel is crucial for maintaining a well-informed public and promoting accountability in governance. By supporting quality journalism, readers can help ensure that important stories and issues receive the attention they deserve.

Israel is set to mark Memorial Day, a national day of remembrance, with ceremonies held at cemeteries, community centers, and schools across the country. The day will begin with a siren at 8:00 p.m. and a second siren will sound on Monday morning at 11 a.m.

According to figures released by authorities, 1,594 soldiers and civilians were killed in combat or by terror since Israel's last Memorial Day, making it the deadliest year for the country's security forces and civilians in five decades. Five more soldiers have been killed in combat since then.

The Times of Israel has not put up a paywall, but the journalism it provides is costly. The news outlet is inviting readers to support its work by joining The Times of Israel Community, which offers ad-free access to The Times of Israel, exclusive content available only to Community members, and support for quality journalism.

As David Horovitz, Founding Editor of The Times of Israel, stated: "We're really pleased that you've read X Times of Israel articles in the past month. That's why we started the Times of Israel eleven years ago - to provide discerning readers like you with must-read coverage of Israel and the Jewish world. So now we have a request. Unlike other news outlets, we haven't put up a paywall. But as the journalism we do is costly, we invite readers for whom The Times of Israel has become important to help support our work by joining The Times of Israel Community."

The Times of Israel Community membership starts at just $6 a month. By supporting the news outlet's work, members enable it to continue providing comprehensive coverage of Israel, the Jewish world, and the region without compromising its journalistic integrity.
