Ein Tamar (Hebrew: עֵין תָּמָר, lit. Date Spring) is a moshav in the northern Arabah valley in Israel. Located south of the Dead Sea, it falls under the jurisdiction of Tamar Regional Council.

It was established in August 1982 by 24 families.

The historical, biblical (Ezekiel 47:19) village of Tamar is probably located in the Hatzeva Fortress near Ir Ovot.
