Aviel (Hebrew: אֲבִיאֵל) is a moshav in northern Israel. It is located south of Haifa within Alona Regional Council, near Zikhron Yaakov and Binyamina-Giv'at Ada. It had a population of 821 in 2019.
The moshav was established by the Herut party in 1949 and named after Israel "Aviel" Epstein, an Irgun envoy to Rome, who was killed in Italy on 28 December 1946. Its original name was Yad HaYod-Daled, after the fourteen Irgun members who died fighting the British.
