Giv'on HaHadashah (Hebrew: גִּבְעוֹן הַחֲדָשָׁה, lit. New Gibeon) is an Israel settlement northwest of Jerusalem in the West Bank. Located near Ramot neighborhood of Jerusalem and is adjacent to Giv'at Ze'ev, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Binyamin Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 1,151.
The settlement was originally established in 1895 by Yemenite Jews, but they left the location after a number of years. It was named after the biblical Gibeon, in Hebrew Giv'on (Joshua 10:10+12), situated nearby. The village was resettled in 1924, but its inhabitants fled as a result of the 1929 Palestine riots. It was resettled again in 1977 by members of Gush Emunim, and eventually absorbed many Jewish emigrants from the former Soviet Union, as well as many Sabras. Although it is mostly secular in character, it is also home to a few religiously observant families.
