Bat Hefer (Hebrew: בַּת חֵפֶר, lit. Daughter of Hefer) is an Israeli communal settlement in the Sharon plain, east of Netanya and adjacent to two kibbutzim; Bahan and Yad Hana.

Bat Hefer was originally founded as Sokho and named after that ancient town. Construction of the modern village began in 1995, with the first residents moving in in 1996. It was built as part of the Seven stars project.

Bat Hefer is named after "Hefer", an administrative district in this area with a district chief in the time of King Solomon (1 Kings 4:10). Covering 1,000 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of the Hefer Valley Regional Council. The village is between the Highway 6 highway to the west and the Green Line on the east.
