Aniam (Hebrew: אֲנִיעָם) is an Israeli settlement, a moshav, located in the Golan Heights, under the administration of Israel. The settlement was built in 1978. It falls under the municipal jurisdiction of the Golan Regional Council. The international community considers Israeli settlements in the Golan Heights illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[2]

Aniams name derives from a member of Menashe tribe (2 Chronicles 7:19), whose tribe area was also on the Golan Heights.
