Giv'at Ze'ev ( _he. גִּבְעַת זְאֵב) is an Israeli settlement and town governed by a local council, located northwest of Jerusalem. While it lies within the borders of the Matte Binyamin Regional Council, it is a separate municipal entity. It is one of the larger Israeli settlements in the West Bank with an estimated population of 10,800.

Giv'at Ze'ev, named after Ze'ev Jabotinsky, was founded in 1982 and was declared a local council in 1984. It has six elementary schools and one junior high school. Giv'at Ze'ev is the center of the Karlin-Stolin Hasidim and one of the town's most notable residents is the Stoliner Rebbe Boruch Yaakov Meir Shochet.

It is located just off Highway 443, affording the townspeople easy access to both Jerusalem and the Tel Aviv area. It is connected to Jerusalem by Egged bus routes 171, 271 and 371 and to Tel-Aviv by Egged bus number 471.

On March 9, 2008, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert approved the construction of 750 new homes in Giv'at Ze'ev under the Agan Ha'ayalot project. This approval stands in contrast to Olmert's policy of freezing new permits for expansion within existing settlements. Olmert argued that the project was first approved in 1999, but stopped in 2000, as a result of the Second Intifada. The approval was criticized by the Palestinian Authority, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and the European Union. On the political right, the Shas party took credit for pressuring Olmert to approve the project. [PM Okays Givat Ze'ev Building Project 3/10/2008 Jerusalem Post]
