Jewish 100: David Brooks – Voices
Columnist, The New York Times
One of the highest profile editorial writers in the U.S., Brooks uses his pulpit to promote, under-the-radar, fundamental universal Jewish values. As a regular op-ed columnist in The New York Times, a newspaper whose stance on Israel is oddly hostile or misinformed, Brooks serves as a counterweight. You can find him going to bat for the Jewish state, and he has even said in the past that his love for the country is one of his core values. On the domestic front Brooks often writes about Jewish issues and family values, advancing core traditional precepts and championing Jewish philosophical principles.
