Kfar Tzvi Sitrin (Hebrew: כפר צבי סיטרין, lit. Zvi Sitrin Village), also known as Beit Tzvi (Hebrew: בֵּית צְבִי, lit. Zvi House) is a technological college and village in northern Israel. Located near Highway 4, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof HaCarmel Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 540.

The village was established in 1953 as a professional religious school, and was named after Zvi Sitrin, a leader of Hapoel HaMizrachi in the United States. In the following years, the area was bought by Lev Leviev, and was used as a school and yeshiva named "Or Avner" after Leviev's father.
