Nehora (Hebrew: נְהוֹרָה) is a moshav in southern Israel. Located on the coastal plain about 5 km west Kiryat Gat in south-central Israel and just to the east of Route 352, across the road from Noga, it falls under the jurisdiction of Lakhish Regional Council. In 2019 it had a population of 1,181.[1]

History

Nehora was founded in 1955 as part of the program to inhabit Hevel Lakhish and was intended to serve as a center of services for surrounding communities. A shopping center, regional school and the offices of the Lakhish Regional Council are located there.[citation needed]

It is built on the land of the depopulated Palestinian villages of Karatiyya and al-Faluja.[2]
