Beit Jann (Hebrew: בֵּיתּ גַ'ן‎; Arabic: بيت جن‎) is a Druze village on Mt. Meron, in northern Israel. At 940 meters above sea level, Beit Jann is one of the highest inhabited locations in the country. In 2007, the population was 10,300. The mayor of Beit Jann is Youssef Qabalan.[1]

Beit Jann has a cool climate, even in summer, and offers breathtaking views that stretch as far as the Sea of Galilee and the Mediterranean on a clear day. Several families in the village run bed and breakfast facilities.[2] The village is located inside the Mount Meron nature reserve. Illegal logging has led to conflicts with park officials and rangers.[3]

In July 2006, during the Second Lebanon War, Beit Jann was hit by Katyusha rockets fired by Hezbollah.
