Israel Today is a Jerusalem-based news agency providing a biblical and objective perspective on local news. Founded in 1978, when it began publishing a monthly German news magazine, the English language edition of Israel Today was launched in January 1999 in order to meet a growing demand for news from Israel to the English-speaking market. Since then, Israel Today has also added editions in Japanese, Korean, Dutch and Norwegian. Israel Today maintains a diverse staff of local journalists who live in the Land and therefore report from firsthand experience, offering a mix of information, interviews, inspiration and daily life in Israel.
Israel Today’s mission is to be the definitive source for a truthful and balanced perspective on Israel and to provide timely news directly from Jerusalem – the focus of world attention. This is especially important in these times when we see prophetic events unfolding before our eyes.
Israel Today has subscribers in more than 80 countries! Our readers are bound together by a common interest in and love for Israel – the Land and People of the Book. We believe that the existence of the State of Israel is a fulfillment of prophecy and a plumb line for the purposes of God for these times.
Israel Today supplies an updated online news service to its English- and German-speaking audiences, featuring the latest multimedia technologies providing live video streaming, searchable archives of news features and headline news that is updated continuously throughout the day.
Among the sections that can be found in Israel Today ’s monthly magazine, as well as on its website, are Politics, Messianic Jews, Christians in Israel, Judaism, Palestinians & Islam, Travel and Tourism, Archaeology, Culture & Art, Nature and Environment, and much more.
