The Israeli Home Front Command (Hebrew: פיקוד העורף‎, Pikud Ha'Oref) is an Israel Defense Forces regional command, created in February 1992 following the Gulf War, which was the first war since the 1948 Arab-Israeli War in which centres of civilian population faced significant threat.

Until the establishment of the Command, responsibility for the Home Front fell under the Civilian Defense’s Chief Officer Corps Command and under Regional Defense. During that time, the three regional commands had their own home front commands. After the first Persian Gulf War, these organizations were unified and the Home Front Command was created.

Ever since its creation, efforts have been made to turn the Home Front Command into a civilian body, but so far, without success. It is currently headed by Aluf Yair Golan.
