Yish'i (Hebrew: יִשְׁעִי, lit. My Salvation) is a moshav in central Israel. Located near Beit Shemesh, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Yehuda Regional Council. In 2018 it had a population of 760.
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
The modern village is built near the ancient biblical ruin of Beit Shemesh (Arabic: ʿAin Shems). Directly to the south-west of the modern village lies another ancient ruin, believed to date back to the Second Temple period, now called Khurbet Bîr el-Leimûn (the Lemon well).
