Kokhav Ya'akov (Hebrew: כּוֹכַב יַעֲקֹב, lit. Star of Jacob) is a religious Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located between Ramah in Benjamin and Beit El near al-Bireh about 10 minutes away by car from the Jerusalem neighborhoods of Pisgat Ze'ev and Neve Yaakov, it is organised as a community settlement and falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Binyamin Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 7,313.
In March 2013 a heritage and tourism site promoting the legacy of Yemenite Jewry opened in Kokhav Ya'akov. Founded by Shoham Simchi, the Yemen Gallery (Hebrew: החצר התימנית) houses an art gallery and a workshop that recreates the life of Yemen's Jews. The building itself is designed in the spirit of traditional Yemenite architecture.
