Yehud-Monosson (Hebrew: יְהוּד-מוֹנוֹסוֹן) is the joint municipality of the town of Yehud and the neighboring communal settlement of Neve Monosson in central Israel, created by their partial municipal merger in 2003, under the terms of which Neve Monosson retained municipal autonomy under a Local Administration (minhelet mekomit). Their combined population in 2007, according to the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), was approx. 25,800.[1]

Within a local authority merger program initiated by the Israeli Ministry of the Interior in 2003, the Municipality of Yehud was merged with the Local Council of Neve Monosson. Under the terms of the merger, Neve Monosson was left with a high level of communal autonomy under the elected Neve Monosson Local Administration (minhelet mekomit) which was granted municipal status as an autonomous borough (va'ad rova ironi) by the Interior Minister in 2005 within the implementation of the merger plan.
