Hadar Am (Hebrew: הֲדַר עָם, lit. Nation Citrus) is a moshav in central Israel. Located in the Sharon plain near Netanya, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hefer Valley Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 494.

The moshav was founded in 1933 by immigrants from Lithuania and North America, and was initially named Herut America Gimel (there were two other settlements named Herut America - Herut America Alef (now Herut) and Herut America Bet (now Beit Herut)) after the organisation which helped them immigrate. In 1943 it was renamed Hadar Am after citrus trees which surrounded the village. The founders were later joined by more immigrants from the Netherlands.
