Gilgal (Hebrew: גִּלְגָּל‎) is a kibbutz and Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located in the Jordan Valley around 16 kilometres north of Jericho with an area of 1,400 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Bik'at HaYarden Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 162.

The village was established in 1970 as a Nahal settlement, and was named after the ancient site of Gilgal, which is thought to have been located at Khirbet al-Mafjir two kilometres south-east of Jericho. It was converted to a civilian kibbutz in 1973.
