Talmei Yosef (Hebrew: תַּלְמֵי יוֹסֵף‎, lit. Yosef Furrows) is a moshav in southern Israel. Located in the Hevel Shalom area of the north-western Negev desert near the Gaza Strip border, it falls under the jurisdiction of Eshkol Regional Council. In 2016 it had a population of 308.[1]

History[edit]

The moshav was established in 1982 by former residents of Talmei Yosef, an Israeli settlement in Sinai. The original settlement's residents were evacuated as a result of the Camp David Accords, and re-settled in Israel, naming their new settlement after their previous one (after Yosef Weitz, a former director of the Land and Afforestation Department of the Jewish National Fund).[2]
