Talmei Yaffe (Hebrew: תַּלְמֵי יָפֶה, lit. Yaffe Furrows) is a moshav shitufi in southern Israel. Located near Ashkelon, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 805.


Talmei Yaffe was founded in 1950 as a kibbutz by immigrants from Poland and Romania on the former lands of the abandoned Arab village of Barbara. It was named after Leib Yaffe, a director-general of Keren Hayesod who was killed in the car bombing of the Jewish Agency building in Jerusalem in 1948.[2] In 1961 it was converted to a moshav shitufi.

In 2005, some families evacuated from settlements in Gush Katif in the wake of the Israeli disengagement from Gaza were resettled in Talmei Yaffe.[3]
