Nordia (Hebrew: נוֹרְדִיָּה‎) is a moshav shitufi in central Israel. Located in the Sharon plain near Netanya and the HaSharon Junction, it falls under the jurisdiction of Lev HaSharon Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 2,010.[1]


The village was founded in August 1948 by demobilised Irgun and Betar soldiers on the land of the depopulated Arab village of Khirbat Bayt Lid.[2][3] The founders came from two organisations; Margolim based in Kfar Yona and Wajwad based in Mishmar HaYarden.

In 1994 a new neighbourhood, Neot Nordia, was established.[citation needed]
