Ethan Bronner, deputy national editor of The New York Times, sought mightily to explain to a group of Jewish high school students this week the challenges, responsibilities and frustrations of covering the Mideast conflict.

N.Y. Times' Ethan Bronner To Leave Jerusalem


Ethan Bronner, the Jerusalem bureau chief for The New York Times, is stepping down from his position.

Bronner, who has been in Jerusalem for the past four years, has been named legal affairs reporter for the newspaper's national desk. Jodi Rudoren, the Times' education editor, will succeed Bronner in the Jerusalem post in April.

The newspaper's public editor had recommended two years ago that Bronner be reassigned because his son was serving in the Israel Defense Forces, which was seen as a conflict of interest by a pro-Palestinian website.
