The Israeli Bobsled and Skeleton Team (Hebrew: נבחרת ישראל במזחלות קרח‎) is the official bobsleigh and skeleton team of Israel. The team is the competitive wing of the Israeli Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (IBSF), which Aaron Zeff and John Frank founded in 2002.[1]

The IBSF added Skeleton to its program in 2009. The Skeleton team has two active athletes: Bradley Chalupski and Meredith Martin. Skeleton alumni include Omri Geva and Aliyah Snyder.

On December 2, 2011, Chalupski earned Israel's first ever medal in Skeleton, finishing in fifth place at the Americas Cup race in Lake Placid, NY.[3]
