Beit Elazari (Hebrew: בֵּית אֶלְעָזָרִי, lit. House of Elazari; Arabic: بيت إلعزاري) is a moshav in central Israel. Located three miles south of the city of Rehovot, it falls under the jurisdiction of Brenner Regional Council. In 2019 it had a population of 1,568.
It was founded in 1948 by Jewish immigrants from eastern Europe, on the site of the depopulated Palestinian village of al-Maghar. Initially named Arugot (Hebrew: ערוגות), it was later renamed Ekron HaHadasha (Hebrew: עקרון החדשה, lit. New Ekron), and finally Beit Elazari in memory of the agronomist Yitzhak Elazari-Volcani, founder of modern agriculture in Israel.
