Template:Infobox Kibbutz Mishmar HaNegev (Template:Lang-he, Guard of the Negev) is a kibbutz in the northern fringe of the Negev desert in Israel. It is located on Road 264, about 2 kilometres south of the Bedouin city of Rahat and around 10 km from Beersheba and is part of the Bnei Shimon Regional Council. In 2006 its population was 547.


Mishar HaNegev was founded as one of the 11 points in the Negev settlements established upon the breaking of the fast of Yom Kippur on 6 October 1946. The 30 founders were members of the Borochov movement. Today the kibbutz is a member of the Kibbutz Movement and is non-religious.

Like several other kibbutzim today, Mishar HaNegev specialises in hosting weddings, with the standard wedding hall and ornamental gardens. It also has two factories which manufacture plastic and insulation materials and electronic goods.
