Rabbi Hillel Goldberg | View from Denver

Fifty years ago, Rabbi Goldberg started his journalistic career with high school buddy Dick Gould. Together, they published their own newspaper. One year later, their magazine, Tempo, was featured in Time.

Since then, Rabbi Goldberg has earned rabbinic ordination in Jerusalem, a doctorate in Jewish intellectual history at Brandeis, and has taught at The Hebrew University (Jerusalem) and Emory (Atlanta).

He has written for the IJN for over 50 years, 12 years as its Israel correspondent (1972-1983). During his time in Israel, he penned a weekly column, The View from Jerusalem. He was executive editor from 1983-2017, when he became editor and publisher. He has won first-place journalism awards in news, features, profiles, arts, editorials, commentary, reportage from Israel and graphic design.

Rabbi Goldberg is an expert on the Musar movement, and has published three books on the subject. He has published a Hebrew volume on the Vilna Gaon’’s understanding of the laws of mikveh.
