Welcome to Bnei Shimon

Bnei Shimon Regional Council covers some 120,000 acres in Israel’s northern Negev, and includes thirteen communities: eight kibbutzim, four moshavim and one new village.
The council’s communities occupy strategic locations in the country, on the seam line and around the city of Beer Sheva, capital of the Negev.
The Negev, whose area constitutes about 60% of the country, houses only about 8% of Israel’s population and has tremendous potential. Bnei Shimon Regional Council has set itself a major goal, to double its population in the coming decade.
