'Ara (Hebrew: עָרָה‎‎; Arabic: عاره‎) is an Israeli Arab village in the Haifa District located in the Wadi Ara, which since 1985 has been part of the Ar'ara local council. It is north of highway 65, between Ar'ara and Kfar Qara. Its population of 4,600 (as of 2004) is almost entirely Muslim.

History

In 1596, 'Ara appeared in Ottoman tax registers as being in the Nahiya of Shara of the Liwa of Lajjun. It had a population of 2 Muslim households and paid taxes on wheat, barley, vines, and goats or beehives.[1]

At the time of the 1931 census, Ar'ara had 115 occupied houses and a population of 673 Muslims.[2]
