1954–55 Liga Leumit

The 1954–55 Liga Leumit season was the first edition of Liga Leumit, which had replaced Liga Alef as the top division of football in Israel. It consisted of 14 clubs; the 12 from the top division in the previous season and two promoted clubs (Hapoel Hadera and Beitar Jerusalem). It used two points for a win and one for a draw.

The title was won by Hapoel Petah Tikva, the club's first championship, whilst Hapoel Hadera and Hapoel Balfouria (who had finished bottom the previous season) were relegated automatically. Beitar Jerusalem and Hapoel Kfar Saba took part in the promotion/relegation play-offs with the top two clubs from Liga Alef, in which Kfar Saba retained their place in the top division, but Beitar were relegated.
