Neve Yarak (Hebrew: נְוֵה יָרָק‎, lit. Greenery Home) is a moshav in central Israel. Located near Hod HaSharon, it falls under the jurisdiction of Drom HaSharon Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 1,353.

History[edit]

The moshav was formed in 1951 by immigrants from Romania, and was initially called Kfar Yarkanim (Hebrew: כפר ירקנים‎‎, lit. Greengrocer Village).[2]

It is located partly on land that had belonged to the Palestinian village of al-Muwaylih prior to its depopulation in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, and partly on land which used to belong to Jaljuliya.[3]
