Givat Oz (Hebrew: גִּבְעַת עֹז, lit. Hill of Strength) is a kibbutz in northern Israel. Located between Umm al-Fahm and Afula, it falls under the jurisdiction of Megiddo Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 359.

The village was established in 1949 by a gar'in of Holocaust survivors from Hungary, and was later joined by more immigrants from Brazil.[citation needed]
