Livne (Hebrew: לִבְנֶה, lit. Birch), also known as Shani (Hebrew: שָׁנִי, lit. Scarlet) is an Israeli settlement. Located in the southern Judaean Mountains, straddling the Green Line and therefore partly in Israel and partly in the West Bank, it is organised as a community settlement and falls under the jurisdiction of Har Hevron Regional Council. In 2017 it had a population of 540.

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.
