Beit Ezra

Beit Ezra (Hebrew: בֵּית עֶזְרָא‎, lit. House of Ezra) is a moshav in southern Israel. Located between Ashdod and Ashkelon on the Israeli coastal plain, it falls under the jurisdiction of Be'er Tuvia Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 962.

The moshav was founded in 1950 by immigrants from Iraq on the ruins of Hamama and was named after Ezra.[1] South of the moshav is Hill 69, which served as a military post and was the scene of fighting during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Also nearby is the Ad Halom bridge at which the Egyptian army was stopped during their advance towards Tel Aviv.
