Beit Elazari (Hebrew: בֵּית אֶלְעָזָרִי, lit. House of Elazari; Arabic: بيت إلعزاري) is a moshav in central Israel. Located three miles south of the city of Rehovot, it falls under the jurisdiction of Brenner Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 1,494.
It was founded in 1948 by Jewish immigrants from eastern Europe, on the site of the depopulated Arab village of al-Maghar. Initially named Arugot (Hebrew: ערוגות), it was later renamed Ekron HaHadasha (Hebrew: עקרון החדשה, lit. New Ekron) and then to its current name after the agronomist Yitzhak Elazari-Volcani, the founder of modern agriculture in Israel. It was the first moshav established by new immigrants, who included Avraham Zilberberg, later a member of the Knesset.
