Neve Zohar is a community settlement belonging to the Tamar Regional Council, located near the hotel area of  Ein Bokek in the southern Dead Sea and considered the lowest settlement in the world. The settlement was established in 1964 with the goal of serving as a residence for the Dead Sea factories and was designed by Bauhaus architect Samuel Mastechkin. Neve Zohar has a secular character and has about 30 families. The settlement is in the process of being expanded and it accepts couples and families who want to live there regularly and not just as a purchase for vacation and investment purposes.
