U.S. COMPANY LAUNCHING THE TEL AVIV TIMES

 MT. KISCO, N.Y., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Alarmed by the Jerusalem Post's militant opposition to the peace process, an American public relations firm announced today that it is launching a new English- language Israeli newspaper, aimed mainly at Israeli, Arab, and American Jewish readers.
 Marinex, Inc. President and CEO Jonathan Braun said his company had secured initial commitments for $3 million in capital to begin publishing the new paper, which will be named The Tel Aviv Times. The publishing plan includes both a weekly print edition, and a daily electronic edition, accessible by computer modem. The weekly will be distributed on newsstands in Israel and, subject to the progress of the peace process, throughout the Middle East. Select newsstands in Europe and the United States will also carry the paper. Controlled circulation copies will be mailed directly to U.S. Jewish leaders.
 Publication will begin next May.
 Braun will serve as the paper's publisher. Currently a member of the editorial board of Midstream, the leading American Zionist journal of opinion and analysis, he is a former managing editor of the New York Jewish Week, a former associate editor of Parade, the national Sunday supplement-style magazine, and a graduate of Columbia University's School of Journalism (Class of `72). His foreign reporting experience includes assignments in Israel, Iran, and Morocco.
 Marinex is a full-service PR firm, serving clients based in Israel and the U.S.
