Hatikva (Hebrew: התקווה, lit. The Hope) is a minor political party in Israel. A secular far-right party, it is headed by Aryeh Eldad, and formed one of the factions of the National Union alliance.
Formed in late 2007, it was officially registered on 9 December 2007. Eldad has stated that the party needs 5000 members "to be legally qualified to raise up to NIS 2 million for each candidate running for party chairman".
For the 2009 elections the party joined the National Union, with Eldad winning fourth place on the Union's list.
