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.

In an e-mail to Politico, Bronner said, "I have not been reassigned. I asked to return. It has been 4 years, my parents are in their 90s and I originally promised to stay only three years, both my sons are there, my wife wants to return to her psychoanalytic practice. So we are coming home."
