The memorial for the Jewish Soldiers in the Soviet Army in World War II is a memorial dedicated to the Jews in the Red Army who died in World War II. The memorial is in the National Military and Police Cemetery in Mount Herzl in Jerusalem. It is next to the memorial to those who served in the Polish army.
