Al-Manshiyya (Arabic: المنشية) was a Palestinian Arab village in the Tiberias Subdistrict. It was depopulated during the 1947–1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine on March 3, 1948. It was located 11 kilometres south of Tiberias.
The village was located 0.5 km south of Umm Junieh or Khirbat Umm Juni, and the two villages were usually described together. In 1799, in the late Ottoman period, Um Junieh was noted as "ruins" on the map of Pierre Jacotin. In 1875, Victor Guérin noted Um Junieh as a village. In the 1881 Survey of Western Palestine Umm Junieh was described as having 250 inhabitants, all Muslim. They noted that it was possible that Umm Junieh was the place which Josephus called Union.
In the 1880s the land of Khirbat Umm Juni and Al-Manshiyya[dubious ] was bought on behalf of the Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í Faith. The Arab inhabitants continued to farm the land as tenants. In 1911, the land was resold to the Jewish National Fund. In the 1922 census of Palestine, there were 79 Muslim residents in Khirbat Umm Juneh, while no number is available for Al-Manshiyya.[dubious ]
