List of newspapers in Israel

Entrance of Beit Sokolov, house of the Israeli Journalists Association

This list of newspapers in Israel is a list of newspapers printed and distributed in the State of Israel. Most of them are published in Hebrew, but there are also newspapers catering to Arabic speakers, and newspapers catering to immigrants speaking a variety of other languages, such as Russian, English and French.

Reuters correspondent Tova Cohen described Israeli society in 2012 as "news-obsessed."[1] Israel has a high newspaper readership rate, due to a combination of high literacy rate and a cultural interest in politics and current affairs. Average weekday readership of newspapers in Israel is around 21 papers per 100 people, although many Israelis end up reading more than one paper.

Israeli press, 1949

During the Mandate era and the first decades following independence, there were numerous newspapers owned and associated with political parties. They had mostly been discontinued by the 1970s, though a few remain, including Hamodia (Agudat Yisrael), al-Ittihad (Maki) and Yated Ne'eman (Degel HaTorah).
