Bareket ( _he. בַּרֶקֶת) is a moshav in central Israel. Located in the Shephelah around five kilometres north-east of Ben Gurion International Airport and covering 2,500 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hevel Modi'in Regional Council. In 2007 it had a population of 1,300.

The village was established in 1952 by members of Hapoel HaMizrachi who had immigrated from Haba'an in south-east Yemen. It was initially named Kfar Halutzim ("Pioneers' Village") and then Tirat Yehuda Bet (after nearby Tirat Yehuda), before adopting its current name. Like Nofekh and Ahlama (the former name of Beit Arif), the name relates to one of the 12 stones in the Hoshen, the sacred breastplate worn by a Jewish high priest.
