Shlomi (Hebrew: ) is a town in the Northern District of Israel. In 2018 it had a population of 6,351.


Shlomi was founded as a development town in 1950 by Jewish immigrants from Tunisia and Morocco on the ruins of an Arab village of al-Bassa, which had been destroyed during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War.[2][3][4] It was named after a leader from the tribe of Asher, mentioned in the Bible (Num 34:27).

Shlomi is supported in the main by the UJIA (United Jewish Israel Appeal), and by the British Jewish youth group, AJ6.

Shlomi has been the target of Hezbollah Katyusha rocket attacks on 11 May 2005, Israel's Independence Day, and again on Israel's Independence Day in 2006.

It was again the target of rocket attacks on 12 July 2006, a diversion to facilitate the killing of three soldiers and kidnapping two others, which sparked the 2006 Lebanon War.
