|Founded by||Jewish Agency|
Shaharut (Hebrew: שַׁחֲרוּת) is a community settlement in the far south of Israel. Located 40 kilometers north of Eilat, and six kilometers west of Yotvata on a ridge above the Arabah valley, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hevel Eilot Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 130.
The village was founded in 1985 by the Jewish Agency and was named after the nearby Shaharut Mountain; the word "Shaharut" means "youth", as in Ecclesiastes chapter 11. It is the only settlement in the area that is not in the valley.
