Israeli journalist steps down as commentator for Haaretz and Channel 10 TV amid a flurry of cancellations
Ari Shavit, one of Israel’s most prominent journalists and the author of New York Times bestseller My Promised Land, has resigned from two of his media roles after two women accused him of sexual harassment.
Danielle Berrin, a reporter for the US Jewish Journal, wrote an article earlier this month about an unnamed “accomplished journalist from Israel” who had assaulted her during a book tour in 2014. Although the column did not name him, speculation quickly focused on Shavit, who offered an apology last week.
I’m grateful for Ari Shavit’s powerful, honest statement. His resolution to do ‘heshbon hanefesh’ – an accounting of the soul – is admirable https://t.co/OOGMIOuNHD
