Founded byEgyptian immigrants

Yesha (Hebrew: , lit. Salvation) is an agricultural moshav in southern Israel. Located in the Hevel Shalom area of the Negev desert, it falls under the jurisdiction of Eshkol Regional Council. In 2018 it had a population of 410.[1]


The moshav was established in 1957 by Jews who were expelled from Egypt in the wake of the 1956 Suez Crisis,[2] though this population eventually left, and was replaced by new settlers. Its name is derived from the biblical passage "with the power of salvation of his [God's] right hand" (Psalms 20:6).[3][4]

It has been subject to several Qassam rocket attacks launched from the Gaza Strip.
