Mitzpe Yeriho (מצפה יריחו, lit. Jericho Lookout) is a communal Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Located 20 km east of Jerusalem and 10 km east of Ma'ale Adummim along Highway 1 in the Judean desert, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Binyamin Regional Council. In 2007 it had a population of 1,700.
The original settlers to the area where a mixed group of both religiously observant and non-observant Jews. They later split up into two groups, and the non-observant members established a new settlement, Vered Yericho, located in the Jordan Valley below Mitzpe Yericho and closer to Jericho. Still, Mitzpe Yeriho is a community of various traditions and observance levels. While the main synagogue follows Ashkenazi traditions, there is also a popular Sephardi synagogue and a Chabad synagogue.
In 1982 the town accepted then 27 year old Yehuda Kroizer as community Rabbi. Rabbi Kroizer gives regular classes, both in the town as well as in the Yeshivat HaRaayon HaYehudi, the former yeshiva of Rabbi Meir Kahane.
Over 300 families reside in Mitzpe Yericho as of 2005.
