Vered Yeriho (Hebrew: וֶרֶד יְרִיחוֹ, lit. Rose of Jericho) is a moshav and Israeli settlement in the West Bank of Israel. Located near Jericho in the Jordan Valley, it falls under the jurisdiction of Megilot Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 298.
The community was founded in 1979 as a result of the dissociation of the secular nucleus from the religious nucleus in Mitzpe Yeriho, a nearby settlement to the west of Vered Yeriho. The moshav is located on a hill overlooking the Aqabat Jaber section of Jericho. From the scenic perimeter road of the moshav, one can see Jericho and the northern Dead Sea.
