Beit Horon (Hebrew: בֵּית חוֹרוֹן) is an Israeli settlement and communal village bordering Route 443 between Modi'in and Jerusalem, the biblical pass of Beit Horon (Joshua 10:10), after which it is named. Beit Horon receives municipal services from the Matte Binyamin Regional Council. The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.
A religious elementary school located in Beit Horon serves local children as well as those from surrounding villages. There are also three nurseries and kindergarten, two synagogues, a kollel, a mikvah for women and men, and a library.
