Gita (Hebrew: גִּתָּה) is a communal settlement in northern Israel. Located near Ma'alot-Tarshiha, Jatt and Yirka, it falls under the jurisdiction of Ma'ale Yosef Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 202.

The village was founded in 1980 as part of the Lookouts in the Galilee plan to establish Jewish settlements in the area, but was later abandoned. It was re-established in 1993 by immigrants from the former Soviet Union. It is named after a nearby stream.
