Merom Golan (Hebrew: מְרוֹם גּוֹלָן) is an Israeli settlement and a kibbutz in the northern Golan Heights which lies in the municipal territory of the Golan Regional Council, at the foot of Mt. Bental. The international community considers Israeli settlements in the Golan Heights illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[1]

Kibbutz Golan (later Merom Golan) was established with funds from the Upper Galilee Regional Council on the site of the abandoned military camp of Aleika.[2]
