Matzuva (Hebrew: מַצּוּבָה), also known as Matzuba, is a kibbutz in the Western Galilee in northern Israel. Located south of the development town of Shlomi, it falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Asher Regional Council. In 2011 it had a population of 600.

The village was established in 1940 by immigrants from Germany, members of the Maccabi HaTzair youth movement. It was named after the nearby Matzuva antiquities.


Due to economic problems, the kibbutz textile factory closed down in 2003.[1]In 2011, the kibbutz won awards for its avocado harvests. It operates a volunteer program and an ulpan for Hebrew language acquisition. [2]
