Aviram Baruchyan (Hebrew: אבירם ברוכיאן‎‎; born March 20, 1985 in Jerusalem) is an Israeli professional football player who plays for Hapoel Katamon Jerusalem.


He has been playing for Beitar Jerusalem since Youth level. In the 2002–2003 season he moved to the Senior team. Baruchyan plays as a creative midfielder.

He wears the number 8 jersey which is the same number that his famous uncle wore. His uncle is former Beitar legend Uri Malmilian. When Avi Nimni played in Beitar, Baruchyan handed him the number 8 since it is also Nimni's preferred number. Baruchyan wore temporarily the number 16.
