Ma'ale Hever (Hebrew: מַעֲלֵה חֶבֶר) or Pnei Hever (Hebrew: פְּנֵי חֶבֶר), at an elevation of 810 metres, is an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located in the eastern Hebron hills to the east of Hebron, it is organised as a community settlement and falls under the jurisdiction of Har Hebron Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 561.
The settlement was established as Nahal Yakin on 31 January 1982 as a pioneer Nahal military outpost and demilitarized when turned over to eleven families on 24 August 1983, after which it was renamed after the nearby Hever Stream. In its early years, the only route leading to the village passed through the Palestinian town of Bani Na'im.
In 2009, Assaf Ramon, son of Israeli Astronaut Ilan Ramon who was aboard the fatal mission Columbia when the space shuttle exploded, was killed when the F-16 he was flying crashed in the vicinity of Ma'ale Hever.
