Nofei Nehemia (Hebrew: נוֹפֵי נְחֶמְיָה) is an Israeli outpost east of Ariel in the jurisdiction of the Shomron Regional Council in the northern West Bank. It is officially within the boundaries of Rechelim, a nearby Israeli settlement. First established in 2002, it is situated adjacent to Rechelim on Route 60, between Kfar Tapuach and Eli. The village also lies adjacent to the Palestinian towns of Iskaka and Yasuf. A few dozen families live on the outpost.
Nofei Nehemia, like all Israeli outposts, is illegal under Israeli law. The Israeli government has pledged in the past to dismantle the outpost. The international community views Israeli outposts as Israeli settlements and considers them also illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.
