Beit HaGadi (Hebrew: בֵּית הַגָּדִי, lit. House of the Gad) is a religious moshav in southern Israel. Located near Netivot and the Gaza Strip, it falls under the jurisdiction of Sdot Negev Regional Council. In 2019 it had a population of 847.[1]

History

The village was established in 1951, and was initially named Beit HaGide'a. The founders were demobilised IDF soldiers who were members of Netiv BeMoledet organisation and Hapoel HaMizrachi. They were immigrants from Hungary and Romania, and had previously worked in Rishon LeZion.

Its name is taken from the Tribe of Gad, which lived in the area in biblical times, and the Bedouin village of Bit Hajadaa that appears on the Madaba Map.
