Commentary (magazine) was founded, in 1945, by Norman Podhoretz, often considered the dean of neoconservatism. It defines its scope is opinion and intellectual life, with a general approach but a Jewish interest: "the fate of democracy and of democratic ideas in a world threatened by totalitarian ideologies; the state of American and Western security; the future of the Jews, Judaism, and Jewish culture in Israel, the United States, and around the world; and the preservation of high culture in an age of political correctness and the collapse of critical standards".

The publisher is the American Jewish Committee, and editorial policy is generally aligned with that of the Likud Party.
