The Har Hebron Regional Council (Hebrew: מועצה אזורית הר חברון, Mo'atza Azorit Har Hevron) is an Israeli regional council in the southern Judean Hills are of Mount Hebron in the southern part of the West Bank, administering settlements in the Hebron region, as well as others nearby. The headquarters are located adjacent to Otniel. Founded in 1983, the first settlement was Beit Yatir.
The current "mayor" of the Council is Tzviki Bar Chai. About 5000 Israelis live in the council's municipal territory, most of which are not adherents of Orthodox Judaism.
While the local council of Kiryat Arba is physically located within the territory of the Har Hebron Regional Council, it is an independent local council.
Only three of the settlements, Eshkolot, Sansana, and Mazadot Yehuda, all on the southern edge of the West Bank, are on the Israeli side of the West Bank Barrier.
