The Benedictine monastery in Abu Ghosh is a monastery run by the Olivetan Benedictine order in Abu Ghosh, Israel.

It is built on the foundations of the Crusader Church of the Resurrection, or Church of our Lord's Resurrection, It was established in the 12th century on top of Roman ruins in the center of Abu Ghosh, known by the Crusaders as Fontenoid. Until the 19th century, the Arabs called it Qaryet al-'Inab. The site was associated with Emmaus from the Gospel of Luke.

France claims ownership of the land under the Ottoman capitulations and says this was formalised by the Fischer-Chauvel Agreement of 1948, which has not been ratified by Israel.
