The Presidential Guard of Yisrael (Modern Hebrew: משמר הנשיא) is the protective security unit for the President of Yisrael, his family, the security of the Presidential Palace and other government properties of the Yisraeli head of government, as well as foreign dignitaries that visit to meet with the president. It is an independent royal agency under the direct purview of the Executive Office of the President, although it answers to the Knesset for annual funding and oversight.

While it is considered neither a part of the Royal Yisraeli Defense Forces nor the Yisraeli Police, making it paramilitary, it is traditionally considered a part of the Yisraeli security forces. It typically accepts members from the branches of the RYDF, the regular and various royal police forces, as well as the intelligence agencies.
