Ma'ale Yosef Regional Council

The Ma'ale Yosef Regional Council (Hebrew: מועצה אזורית מעלה יוסף‎, Mo'atza Azorit Ma'aleh Yosef) is a regional council in the Upper Galilee, part of the North District of Israel, situated between the towns of Ma'alot-Tarshiha and Shlomi. Its offices are located in Gornot HaGalil.

The council was established in 1963, although most of its settlements were founded in the 1950s. It was named for Yosef Weiz, Zionist pioneer of the Second Aliyah and director of the Jewish National Fund following the First World War.
