Congratulations to John Podhoretz

Jonathan Schanzer

Commentary magazine announced that its next editor will be JPC distinguished fellow John Podhoretz, who will take over the monthly publication in January 2009, according to an article today in the New York Sun.

Mr. Podhoretz will be the fourth editor in Commentary‘s 61-year history. The Sun calls Commentary “the gold standard of what has come to be called neo-conservative thinking — and a showcase of enterprising journalism, offering scoop after scoop on the beat of ideas.”

Mr. Podhoretz will be a featured panelist for the Jewish Policy Center’s forthcoming Policy Forum in Minneapolis on November 11 at the Sabes Jewish Community Center. That event, entitled “American Foreign Policy in the Middle East: Dangerous Times in a Dangerous Neighborhood,” will be hosted by celebrated radio talk show personality Michael Medved.
