Mehola (Hebrew: מְחוֹלָה) is a religious moshav and Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located in the Jordan Valley near the Green Line with an area of 5,000 dunams, it falls under the jurisdiction of Bik'at HaYarden Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 351. The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.
The village was established in 1967 by Bnei Akiva members, and was civilianised the following year. It was named after the biblical city of Abel-mechola (1 Kings 19:16), which was located in the area.
