Israel Newspapers


Here is a gathering of websites from Israel's premiere newspapers.

The Jerusalem Post

The Jerusalem Post is Israel's top-selling English-language newspaper, also distributed worldwide in English and French. Founded in 1932 as The Palestine Post, the paper has gravitated from a leftward to a centrist position. The paper publishes Sunday through Friday, and with a small circulation of about 15,000 daily and 40,000 on the weekend has its greatest presence online. The paper has a partnership with The Wall Street Journal.


Haaretz, or "The Land," is Israel's oldest daily newspaper. It was founded in 1919 and covers Israel and the Middle East. Its circulation is about 70,000 weekdays and 100,000 on the weekends. There's a Hebrew edition and the English edition, which is packaged with the International Herald Tribune. The paper's editorial stance is liberal.

Arutz Sheva

Arutz Sheva, "Channel 7" in Hebrew, or Israel National News, is a Zionist news outlet that publishes online in English, Hebrew, French and Russian and also branches into Internet radio and video. The network had numerous run-ins with Israeli officials in the past for illegal broadcasting. News is published in print form in B'Sheva, a free weekly paper with 140,000 circulation and the fourth-largest readership in Israel.


Globes is a Hebrew daily financial newspaper published in the evenings with a circulation of about 45,000. The online English-language news site went up in 1995, selecting articles from the paper that appeal to a wide audience and translating them.


Maariv is a Hebrew daily newspaper launched in 1948. Circulation is about 150,000 on weekdays and 200,000 on the weekends. A website translating articles into English didn't work out.

Yedioth Ahronoth

Yedioth Ahronoth, or "Latest News," has the largest circulation in Israel with about 250,000. It was founded in 1939, and has a long-running competition with the Maariv newspaper. The YNet website is owned by the paper, but exclusive content is produced for the site.
