Nazareth Illit (Hebrew: נָצְרַת עִלִּית, Arabic: الناصرة العليا, lit. Upper Nazareth) is a city in the Northern District of Israel. Founded in 1957, it was planned as a Jewish town overlooking the Arab city of Nazareth and the Jezreel Valley. In 2017 it had a population of 40,596.
The establishment of Nazareth Illit was conceived in the early 1950s when development towns such as Karmiel and Beit She’an were founded. There were economic and security reasons for developing a town in this region, but according to Shimon Landman, director of the Interior Ministry’s Department of Minorities, the Nazareth municipal elections in 1954, in which the Israel communist party Maki became the largest faction, were a source of concern.
