History[edit]

Miss Israel Pageant was held for the first time in 1950. Traditionally the pageant called as Malkat HaYofi. Since that year the Miss Israel is became the national franchise holder for Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Europe pageants. The official winner represented Israel at Miss World and the runner-ups for Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Europe but sometimes the winner can also compete at other International pageants, such as in 1953, 1968, 1992, 1996-1998 at Miss World pageant while in 1961 and 1963 participate at Miss International pageant. In 2001 Miss Israel became the national franchise holder for Miss Earth pageant until 2009 while in 2010 Miss Israel pageant did not send the candidate at Miss Earth pageant. In 2006 Miss Israel did not send the candidate at Miss Europe pageant, due to economic problem in Europe, the pageant postponed until present. In 2006 Miss Israel decided the new format for the winners, there are four crowns at the local pageant. For the first time the second title would be being Miss Universe Israel and the official title would be being Miss World Israel.
