Aryeh Leib Frumkin (Hebrew: אריה ליב פרומקין; 1845–1916) was a rabbi, Zionist, a founder and pioneer of Petah Tikva, the first moshava created in by the Jewish community. He also was an author of halachic texts, a teacher, and operator of a wine shop, L. Frumkin and Company.
He emigrated to Eretz Yisrael (Mutassarifate of Jerusalem, Syrian provinces of the Ottoman Empire at the time) during the First Aliyah in 1883. While there he founded the settlement of Petah Tikva in which he built the first house and helped to drain the malaria-ridden swamps. His planting of the first tree there is emblazoned on the seal of the municipality and there is a street named after him.
He died in 1916 in Petah Tikva, where he was buried.
