Bat Shlomo (Hebrew: בָּת שְׁלֹמֹה‬, lit. Salomon's Daughter) is a moshav in northern Israel. Located on the southern slopes of Mount Carmel near Binyamina and Zikhron Ya'akov, it originally was built on 8,068 dunams of land.[2] It falls under the jurisdiction of Hof HaCarmel Regional Council and had a population of 639 in 2016.[1]


The village was established in 1889 as a daughter-settlement of Zichron Ya'akov, funded by Baron Rothschild, and was named after Betty Salomon, the daughter of Salomon Mayer von Rothschild (the Baron's uncle and grandfather). According to a census conducted in 1922 by the British Mandate authorities, Bat Shlomo had a population of 66 inhabitants, consisting of 53 Jews and 13 Muslims.[3] By 1947 it had a population of 100.[2] In 1951 a moshav was established by Transylvanian and Yemenite immigrants adjacent to the original village.[4]


The moshav was a major grape supplier to the Carmel Winery until the 1970s, when it started producing loquats. In 2010 Bat Shlomo Vineyards, a boutique winery, was established.
