Nitzanei Sinai (Hebrew: נִצָּנֵי סִינַי), also known as Kadesh Barne'a (Hebrew: קדש ברנע), is a communal settlement in the western Negev desert in Israel. Located near Nitzana, it is named for its proximity to Sinai, as well as after Kadesh Barne'a in the Bible, one of the stations on the Israelites' journey during the Exodus (Numbers 13:26; Deuteronomy 1:46).
The settlement was founded in 1980 in Sinai and moved to its present site in 1986 following Israel–Egypt Peace Agreement. It is part of Ramat HaNegev Regional Council.
