Korazim (Hebrew: כּוֹרָזִים) is a communal settlement in northern Israel. Located on the Korazim plateau to the north of the Sea of Galilee, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mevo'ot HaHermon Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 357.


The village was founded in 1983 as a moshav, but after it merged with Ma'of it became a communal settlement. It is found just north of the Sea of Galilee. It is named after ancient Chorazin, mentioned in the New Testament (Matthew 11:21), now the site of a much-visited archaeological park, which is located about 1 km east of the modern village.
