Netiv HaLamed-Heh (Hebrew: נְתִיב הַל"ה‎, lit. Path of the 35) is a kibbutz in central Israel. Located in the Valley of Elah, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Yehuda Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 596.[1]


Netiv HaLamed-Heh was established on 16 August 1949 by demobilised soldiers on land that had belonged to the depopulated Arab village of Bayt Nattif.[2] The soldiers had been members of the Daled Company of the Palmach's Harel Brigade, and was initially named Peled (an acronym for Plugot Daled, lit. Daled Company). It was later renamed after the 35 Haganah soldiers killed in a convoy to resupply the Gush Etzion kibbutzim during the 1947–48 Civil War (Lamed-Heh is 35 in Hebrew numerals).[3]
