Tlamim (Hebrew: תְּלָמִים, lit. Furrows) is a moshav in southern Israel. Located in Hevel Lakhish it falls under the jurisdiction of Lakhish Regional Council. In 2019 it had a population of 929.[1]

History

The moshav was founded in 1950 by Jewish refugees from the island of Djerba in Tunisia as part of the effort to settle the region. Its name is derived from a verse in the Book of Psalms (65:11): "Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly, thou settlest the furrows thereof."[2]

It was founded on the land belonging to the depopulated Palestinian village of Burayr.[3]
