Name

Blitzer has said that he has frequently been asked about his name, which has been characterized as seemingly made-for-TV.   Blitzer explains that his surname goes back for generations, and his first name, ‘Wolf’, is the same first name as his maternal grandfather.

In writing for several Israeli newspapers in Washington, Blitzer has used the names Zev Blitzer and Zev Barak.  Zev (זאב) is theHebrew word for “wolf” and Barak (ברק) is theHebrew word for “lightning” (which in German/Yiddish is Blitz).

Blitzer began his career in journalism in the early 1970s in the Tel Aviv bureau of theReuters news agency. In 1973 he caught the eye of Jerusalem Post editor Ari Rath, who hired Blitzer as a Washington correspondent for the English language Israeli newspaper. Blitzer remained with the Jerusalem Postuntil 1990, covering both American politics and developments in the Middle East.
