Lawrence Rifkin

Lawrence Rifkin is the former Senior Editor of The Jerusalem Post. He studied journalism at the University of Connecticut and in the ensuing years worked for a number of leading media outlets, including CBS News, where he was the network's longtime radio correspondent for Israel, the West Bank and Gaza Strip. He also was a spokesman for the late, legendary Jerusalem mayor Teddy Kollek, a lecturer for the IDF and Jewish Agency, and an information emissary to the United States for the World Zionist Organization. He translated from Hebrew to English the book G-suit: Combat Reports from Israel's Air War, and spent several years growing apples, pears, grapes and avocados on a kibbutz in the center of the country.
