Kerem Shalom (Hebrew: כֶּרֶם שָׁלוֹם‎, lit. Vineyard of Peace) is a kibbutz in the Eshkol Regional Council and a border crossing near the meeting of the Gaza Strip-Israel-Egypt borders.

The kibbutz was founded in 1966 adjacent to the triborder area by members of Hashomer Hatzair. Its name includes the word shalom since the members believed that the location would play a role in establishing peace and ending the Arab-Israeli conflict. The kibbutz came apart in 1996, but was re-established in 2001.

In March 2006, a deadly Avian influenza virus was identified in turkey coops in Kibbutz Kerem Shalom.
