Rabbi Meshulam Nahari (Hebrew: משולם נהרי, born 7 May 1951) is an Israeli politician and member of the Knesset for the ultra-orthodox party Shas. He is a Minister without Portfolio serving in the Finance Ministry in the current government.
He is married with 5 children.
Nahari was born in Jerusalem in 1951, and studied in a yeshiva. After his national service he was ordained as a rabbi, and also gained a BA from Lifschitz Teaching College. After graduating he went on to become a headteacher, and also served as a consultant to the Deputy Minister of Education and a member of the Education Ministry directorate, later becoming Director of Department of Haredi Culture in the ministry.
He retained his seat in both the 2003 and 2006 elections, and was made a Minister without Portfolio in Ehud Olmert's government. In September 2006 he was given a position in the Finance Ministry with responsibilities for education and welfare. After his appointment, he proposed a bill which would require local authorities to fund unrecognised ultra-orthodox schools, which was passed despite opposition from the Attorney General and Education Minister Yuli Tamir. He retained his seat again in the 2009 elections, having been placed fifth on the Shas list.
