About Dr. Charles Krauthammer

Charles Krauthammer was an American columnist, author, political commentator, and former physician whose weekly column for The Washington Post is syndicated to more than 400 publications worldwide.

While in his first year studying at Harvard Medical School, Krauthammer became permanently paralyzed from the neck down after a diving board accident, severing the spinal cord at C5. After spending 14 months recovering in a hospital, he returned to medical school, graduating to become a psychiatrist involved in the creation of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders III, and later developing a career as a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer. He was a weekly panelist on PBS news program Inside Washington from 1990 until it ceased production in December 2013. He was a contributing editor to The Weekly Standard and a nightly panelist on Fox News Channel's Special Report with Bret Baier.

Dr. Krauthammer published an open letter on June 8, 2018, stating that despite a longtime struggle with cancer, his cancer has relapsed and his doctors believe his life expectancy to be limited to a few weeks.


Despite this prognosis which was published in the Jerusalem Post 10th June 2018, I am sure that the whole extended family together with the rest of Am Yisrael (the Jewish Community both in Israel and in the diaspora) wish him that he should have many years - till the age of 120.
