Luzit (Hebrew: לוּזִית, lit. Almond Tree) is a moshav in central Israel. Located between Beit Shemesh and Kiryat Gat, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Yehuda Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 653.
The village was established in 1955 by immigrants from North Africa, and was initially named Dir Duban Bet after the depopulated Arab village of Deir al-Dubban. It was later renamed Luzit after almond trees, which are common in the area.
