Eliakim (Hebrew: אֶלְיָקִים) is a communal settlement in northern Israel. Located in the Menashe Heights, it falls under the jurisdiction of Megiddo Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 662.
The village was established in 1949 as a moshav by immigrants from Yemen on the lands of the depopulated Palestinian Arab village of Umm al-Zinat, and was named after Jehoiakim (who was originally named Eliakim), a King of Judah (2 Kings 23:34). In 1970 it was converted to a communal settlement.
