Shlomit (Hebrew: ) is a village in southern Israel. Located in the Negev desert, around 700 meters from the Egyptian border, it falls under the jurisdiction of Eshkol Regional Council. In 2018 it had a population of 305.[1]

History

The village was established in cooperation with Amana, the Ministry for the Development of the Negev and Galilee, and the Defense Ministry's settlement and national infrastructure unit.[2] It initially consisted of mobile structures expected to be replaced by permanent housing. An industrial zone and educational institutions are also planned to be built there, alongside housing for 500 residents.[3]

Jewish National Fund Argentina is a major contributor to the development of Shlomit.[4]
