Ya'ara (Hebrew: יַעֲרָה, lit. honeysuckle and honeycomb) is a moshav in northern Israel. Located near Ma'alot-Tarshiha, it falls under the jurisdiction of Ma'ale Yosef Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 712.
The village was established in 1950 on land that had belonged to the depopulated Arab village of Arab al-Samniyya by immigrants from North Africa and local Bedouin, and was the first mixed Jewish-Bedouin village in the country. It was named after the surrounding forests.
