Shdema (Hebrew: שְׁדֵמָה) is a moshav in south-central Israel. Located near Gedera in the coastal plain, it falls under the jurisdiction of Gederot Regional Council. In 2019 it had a population of 593.
The moshav was founded in 1954 to absorb immigrants to Israel from Persia, on the lands of the depopulated Palestinian village of Bashshit. After the group refused to live there, it was populated by urban residents who chose to live an agricultural cooperative lifestyle and arrived as part of the movement "from city to village."
