Shilo is a religious Israeli settlement in the northern West Bank. Located 28 miles north of Jerusalem on Route 60 and organised as a community settlement, it is neighboured by the Israeli settlements of Eli and Maale Levona and the Palestinian villages Sinjil, Turmus Ayya and Qaryut, and falls under the jurisdiction of Mateh Binyamin Regional Council.
