Giv'at Ye'arim (Hebrew: גִּבְעַת יְעָרִים, lit. Hill of Forests) is a semi-cooperative moshav in central Israel. Located in the Judean Mountains, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Yehuda Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 1,386.
In the past, the majority of Giv'at Ye'arim residents worked in agriculture, particularly viticulture and poultry-breeding. Today, many hold jobs outside the moshav, mainly in Jerusalem and Mevaseret Zion.
