Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analysis from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner.

For $5 a month you will receive access to the following:

  • A user experience almost completely free of ads
  • Access to our Premium Section
  • Content from the award-winning Jerusalem Report and our monthly magazine to learn Hebrew - Ivrit

Help us grow and continue telling Israel’s story to the world.

Thank you,

Ronit Hasin-Hochman, CEO, Jerusalem Post Group
Yaakov Katz, Editor-in-Chief


The telephone rings, and the party on the other end informs you with delight that you have won a dishwasher, a computer, a vacuum cleaner or a set of towels. Or you might be informed that because you buy so much with your credit card, a company is sending all kinds of gifts, for absolutely nothing.

Totally confused, but thrilled to be getting something for nothing, you agree. Sometimes you even give the caller your credit-card number to cover “shipping costs.” In some cases, you may turn the caller down – but still receive a “gift” and accept it when it is delivered.
