Beit Herut (Hebrew: בֵּית חֵרוּת, lit. House of Freedom) is a moshav in central Israel. Located in the Sharon plain between Hadera and Netanya, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hefer Valley Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 681.

The moshav was founded in 1933 by immigrants from the United States, and was initially named Herut America Bet, as the moshav now known as Herut was named Herut America Alef at the time (there was also a Herut America Gimel, which is today called Hadar Am). The name was taken from the organisation which helped the residents immigrate to Mandate Palestine, the name was given by Emmanuel Labes one of the first residents.
