The black marble forecourt of the NSW Jewish War Memorial serves as the entrance to the Sydney Jewish Museum. Its walls are inscribed with the names of nearly 3,000 Jewish service people, including 177 who gave their lives in the service of Australia in the two world wars.

The war memorial is situated in the foyer of a heritage building occupied by the Sydney Jewish Museum. The memorial consists of a large black honour roll with gold inscriptions on the entrance wall, flags, a plinth in front of the honour roll with the dedication details and a stained glass window commemorating the Second World War.

The main wall comprises a dedication to "those who gave their lives in defence of the state of Israel, dedicated by the NSW Association of Jewish ex-servicemen and women on behalf of the Jewsih community of NSW.", and those enlisted in NSW.

This was the first war memorial General Sir John Monash dedicated in Australia.
