Gizo (Hebrew: גִּיזוֹ) is a community settlement in central Israel. Located to the north-west of Beit Shemesh, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Yehuda Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 210.
The village was established in 1960 by the Jewish Agency as a place of residence for teachers of the Gizo Regional Council school and was named after the biblical city of Gizo (1 Chronicles 11:34) nearby. It is located on the land of the depopulated Palestinian village of Bayt Jiz, the name of which was also possibly referencing Gizo.
