List of newspapers in Israel
This is a list of newspapers in Israel. This list focuses on printed newspapers only and does not list other news sources, such as online sites or radio and TV channels. Most newspapers in Israel are published in Hebrew, but there are also newspapers catering to Arabic speakers, and newspapers catering to immigrants speaking a variety of other languages (most notably Russian and English).
Reuters correspondent Tova Cohen described Israeli society in 2012 as "news-obsessed." Israel has an incredibly high newspaper readership rate, a combination of a high adult literacy rate of 95% (closer to 100% in the Jewish population), and a cultural interest in politics and current affairs. Average weekday readership of newspapers in Israel is around 21 papers per one hundred people although many Israelis end up reading more than one paper.
