Einav (Hebrew: עֵנָב‬) is an Israeli settlement organized as a community settlement in the northern West Bank. Located on Highway 57 between Avnei Hefetz and Shavei Shomron, the religious Zionist and Orthodox Jewish community is within the municipal jurisdiction of the Shomron Regional Council. Established in 1981 with the assistance of the Amana settlement organization, by 2017 it had a population of 800. The name of the village comes to remember the vineyards that used to be a feature of the surrounding areas and from the nearby Palestinian town of Anabta.

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[2]
