Bnei Brak (Hebrew: בְּנֵי בְרַק (audio) (help·info), bənê ḇəraq) is a city located on the central Mediterranean coastal plain in Israel, just east of Tel Aviv. A center of Ultra Orthodox Judaism, Bnei Brak covers an area of 709 hectares (1752 acres, or 2.74 square miles), and had a population of 193,774 in 2017. It is one of the poorest and most densely populated cities in Israel, and eighth most densely populated city in the world.
Bnei Brak takes its name from the ancient Biblical city of Beneberak, mentioned in the Tanakh (Joshua 19:45) in a long list of towns of ancient Judea. The name is also cited by some as continuing the name of the Palestinian village of Ibn Ibraq (“Son of Ibraq/Barak”) which was located on the site of ancient Beneberak, 4 kilometers (2.5 mi) to the south of where modern Bnei Barak was founded in 1924.
