Israel's national Under-19 team (Hebrew: נבחרת הנוער של ישראל בכדורגל‎), also known as Israel Under-19s or Israel U-19s, is considered to be the feeder team for the Israel national under-21 football team.

This team is for Israeli players aged 19 or under at the start of a two-year UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship campaign, so players can be, and often are, up to 20 years old. Also in existence are teams for Under-21s and Under-20s (for non-UEFA tournaments) and Under 17s. As long as they are eligible, players can play at any level, making it possible to play for the U-19s, senior side and again for the U-19s. It is also possible to play for one country at youth level and another at senior level (providing the player is eligible).

Israel U-19s do not have a permanent home. They play in stadia dotted all around Israel in an attempt to encourage fans in all areas of the country to get behind Israel. Because of the lack of appeal compared to the senior national team, smaller grounds are used (such as HaMoshava Stadium).
