Ahi'ezer (Hebrew: אֲחִיעֶזֶר‬, Arabic: أحيعيزر‎) is a religious moshav in central Israel. Located near Lod, it falls under the jurisdiction of Lod Valley Regional Council. In 2016 it had a population of 1,770.[1]


The village was founded on 27 June 1950 by immigrants from Al Bayda' in Yemen. It was named for the biblical figure Ahiezer,[2][3][4] who was the chief of the tribe of Dan which previously lived in the area (Numbers 1:12; 10:25).

The moshav was established on the agricultural lands of the Palestinian village of Al-Safiriyya.[5]
