Biography[edit]

Born in 1950, Rabin-Pelossof gained an LLB and worked as an attorney.[1]

For the 1999 elections she was placed sixth on the Centre Party list,[2] and entered the Knesset as the party won six seats. She was appointed chairwoman of the Ethics Committee.

On 6 March 2001 she and two other Centre Party MKs broke away to establish a new faction, New Way.[3] The day after, she was appointed Deputy Minister of Defense in Ariel Sharon's new government.

On 26 March the other two New Way members resigned from the Knesset and were replaced by Centre Party MKs, leaving Rabin-Pelossof alone in the faction.[3] On 7 May 2001 she joined One Israel, which later became Labor-Meimad.[3] She resigned from her ministerial post on 1 August 2002. She lost her seat in the 2003 elections.

Rabin-Pelossof is married with two children.[1]
