The Miss Israel Pageant was held for the first time in 1950. Since then Miss Israel has been the national franchise holder for the Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss International and Miss Europe pageants. The official winner represents Israel in the Miss Universe competition and the runners-up in the Miss World, Miss International and Miss Europe competitions. Sometimes the winner competes at other international pageants, such as the Miss World pageant in 1953, 1968, 1992, 1996–1998, and the Miss International pageant in 1963.
