Tel Adashim (Hebrew: תֵּל עֲדָשִׁים, lit. Lentils Hill) is a moshav in northern Israel. Located between Nazareth and Afula, it falls under the jurisdiction of Jezreel Valley Regional Council.[1] In 2006, it had a population of 744.

Settlement began in the area in 1913 when Hashomer established Tel Adash, a settlement whose purpose was to defend the oil pipeline from Iraq to Haifa, though by 1918, only two families remained. In 1923, a moshav was established on the site and was named Tel Adashim.

Notable past and present residents include Rafael Eitan, Gonen Segev, Yigal Cohen, A. D. Gordon and Alexander Zaïd.
