Hadid (Hebrew: חָדִיד‎) is a moshav in central Israel. Located near Modi'in, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hevel Modi'in Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 866.

History[edit]

Hadid was a city of the tribe of Benjamin in Biblical times.[2][3] In the Hellenistic era it was known as 'Adida. Hadid was founded in 1949 as a kibbutz by Yemenite Jewish immigrants, later joined by immigrants from Romania. In 1950, it was reorganized as a moshav affiliated with the Hapoel HaMizrachi movement.[4] The site was about 2km west of the former Arab village of al-Haditha and the archaeological tel of ancient Hadid.[5]
