“Coteret”: selected articles from the Hebrew media

Posted: November 17th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: media | Tags: , , , , , | 1 Comment »

One of the reasons I write this blog in English is the shortage in first hand information on the Israeli society for those who don’t speak Hebrew. The two main publications in English, Haaretz and Jerusalem Post, represent only a fraction of what’s going on (they have a combined market share of less than 10 percent); Ynet.co.il has a site in English, but most of their articles aren’t posted there.

Now there is an important new addition: “Coteret”, a blog by Didi Remez, who translates selected stories and article from the Hebrew media, and most notably, from the tabloids Yedioth Ahronoth and Maariv. Usually, Didi posts a short introduction on the writer and the context of the story, followed by the full article.

If you want to know better what Israelis are thinking or saying, be sure to add his blog to your bookmarks.

    I’m there! Thanks for the heads up. I’ve really been needing more English translations of Hebrew news articles.
