Dvir is the most prestigious publishing house in Israel, originally founded in Odessa in 1919 by the Jewish National poet, Haim Nachman Bialik. Today it serves as the company's showcase imprint for the best in international literary fiction.
Zmora-Bitan Publishers was established in 1973, and acquired Dvir in 1986. The ZBM list includes classics of world and Hebrew literature, contemporary fiction and non-fiction, children's books, politics, biography and psychology.
Kinneret Publishing House was founded in 1978 and quickly became known as one of Israel's most innovative and dynamic publishing houses with a list of highly successful children's books, popular fiction, as well as an extensive range of gift books.
Kinneret are the very successful publishers in Israel of THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins, and of Jeff Kinney's DIARY OF A WIMPY KID.
