Kokhav Michael (Hebrew: כּוֹכַב מִיכָאֵל, lit. Star of Michael) is a moshav in southern Israel. Located between Kiryat Gat and Ashkelon, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 1,022.
The moshav was founded in 1950 by immigrants from Iraq on the land of the depopulated Palestinian village of Kawkaba (from which the moshav takes the first part of its name; the second half is from Michael Sobell a British philanthropist). They were joined by immigrants from Argentina in 1962.)
