Kfar Haroeh (Hebrew: כְּפַר הָרֹאֶ"ה, lit. Haroeh Village, Haroeh being an acronym for HaRav Avraham HaCohen Kook) is a religious moshav in central Israel. Located in the coastal plain between Hadera and Netanya, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hefer Valley Regional Council. In 2007 it had a population of 1,500.

The moshav was founded on 23 November 1933, and was named after Abraham Isaac Kook, the first Ashkenazi chief rabbi of Mandate Palestine. Its founders were religious Jews who had immigrated from Europe. The land which the village was built on had been bought by the Jewish National Fund.

One of the village's neighbourhoods, Beit Hazon, is widely regarded as being a separate communal settlement, but is not recognised as such by the regional council.
