A Special Message From Haaretz.com

In Israel and the United States, independent and critical journalism is under attack. Now, more than ever, Haaretz needs your support

Dear Reader,

In Israel and the United States, independent and critical journalism is under attack. Forces opposed to the liberal and progressive values which Haaretz believes in and which have formed the backbone of our reporting for almost 100 years are on the rise. There is a very real threat to the freedom of the press.

Over the past month, we have given free access to all of our coverage of the U.S. presidential election. The election may be over, but the issues it thrust into the spotlight are still very much with us.

By subscribing to Haaretz, you will gain full access – on desktop, mobile and tablet – to the premium content of one of Israel's last strongholds of liberal journalism. But, just as importantly, you will also be contributing to our ongoing efforts to speak truth to power – in Jerusalem and Washington alike.

If you care about Israel and its future as a Jewish and democratic state, you can do something about it. If, like me, you are concerned by the rising tide of anti-Semitism, xenophobia, racism and intolerance, you will find Haaretz an invaluable partner in the struggle against these phenomena.

Your subscription will help to fund investigative reports and exposés, and, with your help, Haaretz can continue working toward creating a more just society for all Israelis. An Israel that the Jewish people can take pride in.

Best wishes,

Aluf Benn,

Editor in chief
