Alona Regional Council (Hebrew: מועצה אזורית אלונה, Mo'atza Azorit Alona) is a regional council in northern Israel. It is part of Haifa District and covers three moshavim, Amikam, Aviel and Givat Nili. The council's headquarters are located in Amikam.


The council was created for the three Mishkei Herut Beitar-affiliated moshavim due to ideological differences with other settlements, most of which were affiliated with Labor Zionism movements.[1]
