David Bar-Illan

David Bar-Illan (7 February 1930 in Haifa – 5 November 2003 in Jerusalem) was an internationally acclaimed pianist, author and columnist. Bar-Illan also served as Executive Editor of the Jerusalem Post, Israel's leading English-language newspaper, before becoming Director of Communications & Policy Planning for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from 1996-99. During this period, he served as the State of Israel's key spokesman with the foreign media, appearing in hundreds of television and radio interviews.

To honor the memory and legacy of Bar-Illan, friends and family helped establish an annual event - The David Bar-Illan Conference on the Media & the Middle East - at the Ariel University Center of Samaria. The forum, held every November in Israel, is a full-day academic conference on media relations and ethics.
