Mei Ami (Hebrew: מֵי עַמִּי) is a moshav in northern Israel. Located near Wadi Ara around two kilometres south of Umm al-Fahm with an area of 3,500 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Menashe Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 270.

The village was established in 1963 as a Nahal settlement, and was civilianised in 1969, becoming a kibbutz. In 1971 it was converted to a moshav shitufi and in 2006 to a moshav ovdim. It is named after Miami, Florida, as the Jewish community in the city helped with its establishment.
