Dishon (Hebrew: דִּישׁוֹן) is a moshav in northern Israel, located along the border with Lebanon, between the towns of Kiryat Shmona and Safed. It is part of the Mevo'ot HaHermon Regional Council. Dishon was established in 1953 by Jewish immigrants from Libya, on the land belonging to the depopulated Palestinian village, Dayshum.

The information in Tobit 1.2 suggests that it is Tishbe, the hometown of Elijah, as well as of Tobit himself.[clarification needed]
