Maoz Haim (Hebrew: מָעוֹז חַיִּים, lit. Haim's Fortress) is a kibbutz in Israel. Located adjacent to the Jordan River in the Beit She'an valley and falls under the jurisdiction of Valley of Springs Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 488. Aside from agriculture, the kibbutz also has a plastics factory, "Poliraz".
South of the kibbutz is a small (11 dunam) nature reserve of Balanites aegyptiaca trees, called the Hurshat Zakum (Maoz Haim) reserve, declared in 1968. Zakum is the Hebrew name of the tree. This is probably the northernmost occurrence of these trees in the world.
