Petza'el (Hebrew: פְּצָאֵל‎) is a moshav and Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located in the Jordan Valley, it falls under the jurisdiction of Bik'at HaYarden Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 214.

The village was established near Ma'ale Efraim in 1970 by the Moshavim Movement. In 1975 it moved to its present location on the remains of the Jewish settlement of Phasaelis from the Second Temple era, which in turn had been named for Phasael, the brother of Herod the Great.
