Kfar Shmaryahu (Hebrew: כְּפַר שְׁמֵרְיָהוּ, Arabic: كفر شمرياهو) is a local council in Israel, within the Tel Aviv District. The council was founded in 1937, during the Fifth Aliyah to Israel. The village is named after Shmaryahu Levin (1867–1935), a Russian-born Jewish Zionist leader. In 2015 it had a population of 1,856.
Originally an agricultural community Kfar Shmaryahu became an affluent suburb of Tel Aviv. It is ranked very highly on the Israeli socio-economic scale (10 out of 10). According to Yedioth Ahronoth, Kfar Shmaryahu's municipality annually spends NIS 8,700 per resident, a figure higher than Tel Aviv and over twice as high as Jerusalem.
