Daburiyya ( Arabic: دبورية; Hebrew: דַבּוּרִיָּה) is an Arab village east of Nazareth that gained local council status in Israel's North District in 1961. Its jurisdiction extends over 7,200 dunams. According to the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics, Daburiyya is home to approximately 8,500 residents. The town's population is homogeneously  fallahen. A fallah is an Arab who lives or descended from the village, as opposed to city dwellers or medinniyin.
Daburiyya is located off of
Highway 65 at the foot of Mount Tabor in the Lower Galilee, near the area where the prophetess Deborah judged.
According to the Information on Equality and Social Justice in Israel (ADVA), in 1999 10.5% of Daburiyya's job-ready population are unemployed and 40.4% of the town's university applicants are rejected.
Daburiyya is associated with the
Biblical city of Dabrath, which in Joshua 21:28 and in the Book of Chronicles is allotted to the tribe of Issachar who gave it to the Levites.
Its Hebrew name was
Dav(a)rita or Dveyra. 
In the Roman-Byzantine period, it was named
Helenopolis in Palestina Secunda.
episcopal see of Helenopolis was a suffragan of Scythopolis (Beit She'an).
