Jerusalem–Yitzhak Navon railway station (Hebrew: תחנת הרכבת ירושלים – יצחק נבון, Tahanat HaRakevet Yerushalaim–Yitzhak Navon, originally named Jerusalem–HaUma railway station) is an Israel Railways passenger terminal in Jerusalem.
The station is the eastern terminus of the Tel Aviv–Jerusalem railway. It is the world's deepest heavy-rail passenger station, and the fourth deepest underground station in the world, with its platforms extending down to 80 metres (260 ft) below the street level. It is located near Binyanei HaUma and constitutes part of a major public transportation hub, being situated adjacent to the Jerusalem Central Bus Station as well as next to a station serving current and future lines of the Jerusalem Light Rail.
Construction of the station began in 2007 and was completed in 2018 at a cost of about NIS 500 million (appx. US$140 million). The station entrance is located at an elevation of 815 metres (2,674 ft), with most of the station's 60,000 square metres (650,000 sq ft) of floorspace located underground. The length of the platforms is 300 metres (980 ft). The station can double as a shelter in case of a conventional, biological or chemical attack, being able to provide refuge for 5,000 people.
