Kfar Eldad (Hebrew: כְּפַר אֶלְדָּד) is an Israeli settlement and a community settlement in the West Bank, south of Jerusalem. It is administered by the Gush Etzion Regional Council. The settlement is in the vicinity of Herodium and overlooks the Judean Desert. It is named after Israel Eldad, a Lehi member and Israeli philosopher.
The population of the settlement is made up of both native born Israelis and Russian immigrants. Secular and religious people live side by side in the settlement. The settlement was established by families from the nearby Nokdim settlement, and originally served as the site of temporary housing prior to that town's construction.
