Kfar HaOranim (Hebrew: כְּפָר הָאֳרָנִים‎. lit. Village of the Pines), also known as Menora (Hebrew: מְנוֹרָה‎) or Giv'at Ehud, is a communal Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located near Lapid and Modi'in, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Binyamin Regional Council. In 2007 it had a population of 2,000.

Planning for the settlement (then with the name Giv'at Ehud, after Ehud Ben Amiti, a fighter pilot in Operation Opera) began in 1981. The cornerstone was laid in 1984 at a ceremony attended by Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, by which time the name had changed to Menora. However, legal issues over the ownership of the land led to a delay in construction. The first residents finally moved in in October 1997.
