Azaria (Hebrew: עֲזַרְיָה), or Azarya is a moshav in central Israel. Located in the Shephelah around five kilometres south-east of Ramle, it falls under the jurisdiction of Gezer Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 1,193.
Its name is symbolic, though there is a theory that it was named after Azariah of Judah. The symbolic meaning is an acronym from the Hebrew religious sentence: "Immigrants(ole) (of) Zakho(village in Kurdistan) saw(ra'u)(the) salvation(jeshuat) (of the) Lord(HaShem)."
