Nov (Hebrew: נוֹב) is an Israeli settlement and religious moshav in the southern Golan Heights, under the administration of Israel. Located to the east of the Sea of Galilee, it falls under the municipal jurisdiction of Golan Regional Council. In 931 it had a population of 931.[1]

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the Golan Heights illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[2]


The settlement was established in 1974 on the site of the farm Mazraat Nab that had about 330 inhabitants before it was depopulated in 1967.[3] It was named after a village on the site mentioned in the Jerusalem Talmud.[4] The site is mentioned in the 3rd century Mosaic of Rehob.[5]
