Giv'at Ye'arim

Giv'at Ye'arim ( _he. גִּבְעַת יְעָרִים) (lit. "Hill of Forests") is a semi-cooperative moshav in the Judean Mountains founded in 1950 by Yemenite immigrants. It is administered by Mateh Yehuda Regional Council.

Giv'at Ye'arim is associated with Gibeath, a city mentioned in the Book of Joshua (18:28).

In the past, the majority of Giv'at Ye'arim residents worked in agriculture, particularly viticulture and poultry-breeding. Today, many hold jobs outside the moshav, mainly in Jerusalem and Mevaseret Zion.
