Kol Ha'ir (Hebrew: כל העיר, lit The Whole City, also a homophone for Voice of the City) is a local Hebrew-language weekly published in Jerusalem.[1]


Kol Ha'ir has been published by the Schocken Group since 1978,[2] setting the stage for the founding of local newspapers in other cities throughout Israel.[3] Since its inception, the paper has maintained an independent editorial board despite its association with Haaretz.[4] It was launched by Amos Schocken, whose father, Gershom Schocken, was then editor in chief of Haaretz.[5]
