Mission

From our beginning in 1945 under Elliot E. Cohen, to Norman Podhoretz, the magazine’s second editor, to Neal Kozodoy, its third, and now to current editor John Podhoretz, COMMENTARY‘s mission remains anchored in these principles: to maintain, sustain, and cultivate the future of the Jewish people; to bear witness against anti-Semitism and defend Zionism and the State of Israel; to take inventory in and increase the storehouse of the best that has been thought and said; and to stand with and for the West and its finest flowering, the United States. Most of all, through our publication of articles on political, historical, cultural, and theological issues, as well as fiction and memoirs, COMMENTARY is an act of faith in the importance and transformative effect of ideas.
