Julia Adler, also known as Julia Adler Foshko (July 4, 1897 – June 3, 1995) was an actress, the last surviving child of Jacob Pavlovich Adler.[1]

She was known for among other roles playing Jessica to her father's Shylock and appearing in the plays of Jacob Gordin.

Starting as a child in Yiddish theater she made her English-language debut in 1922. She last appeared on Broadway in 1939 but her New York Times obituary quoted their then drama critic Brooks Atkinson saying she improved on the previous performance of her sister Stella Adler in the same role.

Born in Philadelphia, she died in Englewood, New Jersey where she had lived many years at the Actors Fund Home.
