Almon (Lang-he|עלמון), also known as Anatot ( _he. ענתות), is a communal Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located near Jerusalem, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Binyamin Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 808.

The village was established in 1982 by a number of secular families with the help of the Amana organisation, and was named Anatot after the Levite city of Anathoth mentioned in the Book of Jeremiah 1:1. It later adopted the name Almon after the nearby Arab village of 'Ilmit.

Geography

Almon is located on a hill near the ruins of the Hariton Temple and the Prat Stream, between Jerusalem (Pisgat Ze'ev) and Ma'ale Adumim/Kfar Adumim. It is close to the Palestinian villages 'Anata and Hizma.

Transport

Almon is connected to Jerusalem and Highway 1 via Road 437. Buses are the only form of public transport available, entering the village 4 times on a workday.
