Tzur Natan (Hebrew: צוּר נָתָן, lit. Rock of Nathan) is a Moshav shitufi in central Israel, in western Samaria.[1] It is located on a hilltop, 170 m above sea level, on a ridge in the foothills of the Samaritan Hills.[2] Located to the south of Tayibe, it falls under the jurisdiction of Drom HaSharon Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 237.

The moshav was founded in 1966 as a Nahal settlement by Hashomer Hatzair members, and was named after Nathan Simons. It was civilianised a year later by former members of the Beitar youth group.
