National Union (Hebrew: Ha'ihud Ha'Leumi האיחוד הלאומי) is an Israeli right-wing party list (סיעה) formed from the merger of three parties: Moledet ("homeland"), Tkuma ("revival") and "Renewed National Religious Zionist party".

The party was formed in 1999 by Rehavam Zeevi, the leader of Moledet, as an alliance with Herut and Tkuma. Herut later left the union. In 2000 Yisrael Beytenu joined the union, more than doubling its size and radically altering its voter demographics, by adding to it a large body of Russian immigrants. Its leader, Avigdor Lieberman, former secretary to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu (1996-1999) and himself a Russian immigrant in the early 1980s, became leader of the National Union in 2001 following the assassination of Zeevi (at the time the Israeli tourism minister).
