Shalishah is a place of uncertain identification mentioned in the Book of Kings (2 Kings 4:42) and the Talmud (Sanhedrin 12a).

Eusebius identified it with Bathsarisa, a location 15 (Roman) miles north of Lydda. Another candidate for Shalishah is Serisiyyah, a now ruinous location west of Mount Ephraim, and yet another possibility is Kefr Thilth which is roughly northeast of there. The Talmud identifies it as the earliest place each year for fruits to ripen.
