MAʿARIV

Daily newspaper published in Tel Aviv.

Maʿariv was founded in 1948 by a group of journalists as an afternoon paper, following their departure from another newspaper, Yedi'ot Aharonot. The splinter group was headed by Ezriel Carlebach, who became the paper's first editor.

For many years, Maʿariv garnered the largest readership of any paper in Israel. Over the years its fortunes have waned considerably. Under its editor, Dan Margalit, Maʿariv defines itself as broad based, apolitical, and with an appeal to both secular and religious Israelis.
