Haaretz, (also written Ha'aretz) is an Israeli newspaper, self-identified as having a "a broadly liberal outlook both on domestic issues and on international affairs." Its circulation is smaller than that of the Jerusalem Post, but it is highly influential. There are English and Hebrew, print and online editions.

It was founded by Zionist immigrants, mostly Russian, in Jerusalem, in 1919 by a group of Zionist immigrants, mainly from Russia. They included the leader of the Revisionists, Zev Jabotinsky.

The paper moved to Tel Aviv in 1922, where it is now based. It was bought by Salman Schocken in 1935, and his son, Amos Schocken, is the current publisher. Dov Alfon is editor-in-chief. In 1922, the paper moved to Tel Aviv, where it currently operates.
