Maor (Hebrew: מָאוֹר) is a moshav in north-central Israel. The word Maor means a light or luminary in Hebrew. Located near Baqa al-Gharbiyye, it falls under the jurisdiction of Menashe Regional Council. In 2018 it had a population of 1,366.
The moshav was established in 1953 by Jewish immigrants from Romania and Poland; was abandoned after several years, and re-established in 1957 by Jewish immigrants from Yemen. Some residents work in agriculture on the moshav, and others live on the moshav but work elsewhere.
