Ernst Akiba/Akiva Simon עקיבא ארְנְסְט סימון‎, 'aqibhah Ernst Simon; March 15, 1899, Berlin – August 18, 1988, Jerusalem) was a German- Jewish educator, and religious philosopher.

Along with Martin Buber, he founded in the 1920s one of the earliest Israeli peace groups, Brit Shalom, which advocated for a binational state including Jews and Arabs.
