Halayla (Hebrew script: הלילה, English translation: "Tonight"), listed as Halaylah in the official Eurovision website, was the Israeli entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1981, performed in Hebrew by Hakol Over Habibi.

The song is a dramatic ballad, with the singer describing what will happen between herself and a lover "tonight". The exact details are left unsaid, but she sings, for example, that "We'll say things that we've never said before/Tonight, tonight, it will be the night", implying a level of intimacy which the couple had not previously achieved.

The song was performed fifth on the night, following Luxembourg's Jean-Claude Pascal with "C'est peut-être pas l'Amérique" and preceding Denmark's Debbie Cameron & Tommy Seebach with "Krøller eller ej". At the close of voting, it had received 56 points, placing 7th in a field of 20.

It was succeeded as Israeli representative at the 1982 Contest by Avi Toledano with "Hora".
