Aniam (Hebrew: אֲנִיעָם) is an Israeli settlement, a moshav, located in the Golan Heights, under the administration of Israel. The settlement was built in 1978 and falls under the municipal jurisdiction of the Golan Regional Council. In 2019 it had a population of 533.[1]

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the Golan Heights illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[2]

Etymology

The name Ani'am is derived from a member of the Menashe tribe (1 Chronicles 7:19), whose tribal area included the Golan Heights.

Economy

The economy of Ani'am is based on the provision of engineering services, on agriculture (mango, citrus vines and grapes for the production of wine and flowers) and the raising of Merino sheep. The village also has a distribution board factory. Many artists have settled in Ani'am and have created the "Artists' boulevard" in the settlement, with art galleries where each artist has built a structure unique to his or her artistic style. There are also boutiques, a pub-restaurant as well as guest cabins in Ani'am.[3]
