Ravid (Hebrew: רָבִיד, lit. Necklace) is a small kibbutz in northern Israel. Located to the west of the Sea of Galilee, it falls under the jurisdiction of Emek HaYarden Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 60.

The village was first founded in 1981, and was named after a nearby mountain. Attempts at settlement failed twice in the 1980s, but a third attempt by demobilised Nahal soldiers (members of the graduates movement of HaNoar HaOved VeHaLomed) in 1994 was successful.
