Mazor (Hebrew: מָזוֹר‎‎, lit. Cure) is a moshav in central Israel. Located in the Sharon plain around three kilometres south-east of Petah Tikva and covering 2,300 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hevel Modi'in Regional Council. In 2007, it had a population of 1,100.

The moshav was established in 1949 by immigrants from Czechoslovakia and Hungary and by native-born Israelis. It was initially named Mizra Har (Hebrew: מזרע הר‎, lit. Grain Field on a Mountain), but was later renamed Mazor, which is derived from the name of the depopulated Palestinian village of al-Muzayri'a. Mazor's early days form the subject of a work of historical fiction, Kfar BaSfar ("A Village on the Border") by Gershon Erich Steiner, one of Mazor's founders.

To the east of the moshav is an archaeological site, which includes a 3rd Century Roman mausoleum. The mausoleum is the only Roman era building in Israel to still stand from its foundations to its roof. A Byzantine-era mozaic floor was found not far from the mausoleum.
