Avshalom, Sinai

Avshalom ( _he. אבשלום) was an Israeli settlement in the Sinai Peninsula.

Founded in 1979, it was named in honour of Avshalom Feinberg, a leader of the Nili espionage network who had died in Sinai during World War I. It was dismantled three years later as a result of the Camp David Accords. In 1990 a new communal settlement by the same name was founded in Israel.
