Sha'ar Menashe (Hebrew: שַׁעַר מְנַשֶּׁה, lit. Menashe Gate) is a psychiatric medical centre in northern Israel. Located near Pardes Hanna-Karkur with an area of 740 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Menashe Regional Council. In the past after 1949 there was here a camp for first absorption of immigrants from Yemen and Irak and a village for elderly people. In 2007 the hospital had in treatment 1,100 patients and was the greatest psychatric institution in Israel.
