"Havatzelet: a letter time for Beth Israel" - one of the pioneers of Hebrew journals in Jerusalem. Started in 1863 by Israel BK, and from 1870 to 1911 edited by his son-in-law, Israel Dov Frumkin. Initially, it was published twice a month. In October 1871, it became a weekly.

The paper put Jerusalem and its affairs at the forefront, and was founded as a competitor to "Lebanon", which was the newspaper of the old settlement people, while the Havatzelet represented the followers of the Hasidim and to some extent the Sephardim in Jerusalem. In every issue of the newspaper, a section was devoted to the settlement of the country, with information on the development of the settlement. The paper had a clear tendency to instill a sense of security and prosperity and to attract settlers to Israel, Thus, a series of travel stories of Joshua Yellin were published (from issue 19 of Year 2), articles by Rabbi Yehuda Alkalay due to the commandment of the settlement of Eretz Yisrael and a sharp polemic against Aharon Yehuda Leib Horowitz Who exhorted Jews to emigrate to the United States and against discrimination in the "Haluka".

All the printed material was on Frumkin's mind and influence. Among the regular writers in the paper were Avraham Lunz, Shlomo Buber, Avraham Bar Gutlover and more. Some were not residents of the country, and sent articles from abroad. The newspaper was the first Hebrew newspaper in Israel to be published in a long period of time - more than forty years. It was named after a street in central Jerusalem near Zion Square, 'Havatzelet Street'.
