Yeruham is a town in the Southern District of Israel, in the Negev desert. It covers 38,584 dunams (~38.6 km²) and had a population of 9,400 in 2006. It is named after the Biblical Jeroham. The mayor of Yeruham was Amram Mitzna but his term ended in early 2011, and he was succeeded by Michael Bitton of Kadima, who was elected mayor in November of 2010. For many years, Yeruham was economically depressed and suffered from image problems, but major efforts to improve the quality of life are under way.
