Peduim (Hebrew: פְּדוּיִים, lit. Ransomed) is a moshav in southern Israel. Located in the north-western Negev near Ofakim, it falls under the jurisdiction of Merhavim Regional Council. In 2019 it had a population of 520.[1]

History

The moshav was established in 1950 by immigrants from Yemen. Like several other moshavim in the area, its name is taken from the Book of Isaiah 35:10;

And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion, and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
