This article is about the biblical location known as Anem. For the two locations named En-gannim, one of which may be the same location as Anem, see List of minor biblical places: En-gannim.
Anem or Anim was a Levitical city in Israel allocated to the Gershonites, according to the Hebrew Bible, from the land of the tribe of Issachar (1 Chronicles 6:73) (6:58 in some Bibles). In the parallel location in the Book of Joshua, the name En-gannim or Engannim appears, and the two names may refer to the same town.
The location of Anem is unknown.
The Pulpit Commentary suggests that Anem is "probably" the same as "En-gannim," "perhaps" created by a contraction of En-gannim to Anem. But Hagen Martino (in 1907), claimed that Anem is 'probably a distinct site', near En-gannim.
