Maor (Hebrew: מָאוֹר) is an agricultural moshav in the Menashe Regional Council, Israel, near Baqa-Jat. It was established in 1953 by Jewish immigrants from Romania and Poland; was abandoned after several years, and re-established in 1957 by Jewish immigrants from Yemen. The population is several hundred people, some of which work in agriculture on the moshav, and others who live on the moshav but work elsewhere.
