Geulei Teiman (Hebrew: גְּאֻלֵי תֵּימָן‬ or גאולי תימן‬, lit. The Redeemed of Yemen) is a religious moshav in central Israel. Located near Hadera in the Sharon plain, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hefer Valley Regional Council. In 2016 it had a population of 362.[1]

History[edit]

The moshav was founded in 1948 by residents of Kfar Yavetz, a village which was evacuated during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War. The residents were immigrants and refugees from Yemen.

In 1967, Geulei Teiman was split into a moshav and a housing project, but the two neighborhoods were reunited in 1992.
