Noah Mozes (Hebrew: נח מוזס‎‎, 1912 – October 7, 1985) was an Israeli newspaper publisher, and the long-time managing editor of the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Aharonoth.[1][2]

Life and career[edit]

He was the son of Yehuda Mozes, and was initially an agronomist.[1][2][3] In 1955, he became the publisher and managing editor of the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Aharonoth, which in the late 1970s became Israel's biggest-selling newspaper.[1][4]

He died on October 7, 1985, in Tel Aviv as a result of injuries incurred when he was hit by a city bus in a traffic accident, at the age of 73.[1][3][5][6][7] His son, Arnon, known as "Noni", replaced him as publisher.[1][5] His widow, Paula Mozes, died in 1997.[1]

The Department of Communication and Journalism at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem was named after him in 1991, in a ceremony at which President Chaim Herzog spoke.[8][9]
