Timrat (Hebrew: תִּמְרַת, lit. Date) is a communal settlement in northern Israel. Located in the Lower Galilee near Nahalal, it falls under the jurisdiction of Jezreel Valley Regional Council. In 2007 it had a population of 1,700.

The village was established in 1981, though the site had previously been the location of kibbutz Timorim, which was established in 1948, but moved to the centre of the country in 1954 due to a shortage of land.[1]


The village is situated near the historic tell Shimron, which is the northernmost point of a natural winterthorn population.[citation needed]
