The 17-year-old recently undertook a trial with the club and coach Thomas Doll was clearly impressed with his efforts.
Ben-Hatira has penned a two-and-a-half year deal keeping him with the AOL-Arena outfit until the summer of 2008.
"We're happy that we could sign such a player for the club," said director of sport Dietmar Beiersdorfer.
"Anis is one of the best offensive midfielders of his age group."
Ben-Hatira is expected to train with Doll's first team although he will likely see action in their reserve team for the time being.
