Regavim (Hebrew: רְגָבִים, lit. Clods (of dirt)) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located near Umm al-Fahm, it falls under the jurisdiction of Menashe Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 270.

The village was established in 1947 by immigrants from Italy and North Africa who were members of the Habonim Dror youth movement. In 1949 it moved to its current location on land which had formerly belonged to the depopulated Arab village of Qannir.
