Na'omi (Hebrew: נָעֳמִי‬) is a moshav shitufi and Israeli settlement in the West Bank.[2] Located in the Jordan Valley three kilometres north of Hisham's Palace, it falls under the jurisdiction of Bik'at HaYarden Regional Council.[2] In 2017 it had a population of 135.

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[3]


The village was established in 1982, and was initially named Na'ama[2] due to its proximity to the Arab village of an-Nuway'imah, before being renamed after the biblical figure of Naomi.[citation needed]
