Ora Namir (Hebrew: אורה נמיר, born 1 September 1930) is an Israeli former politician and diplomat who served as a member of the Knesset from 1974 until 1996, as well as holding the posts of Minister of the Environment and Minister of Labour and Social Welfare during the 1990s. She later became the country's ambassador to China and Mongolia.
Namir was born in Hadera during the Mandate era. She served as an officer in the IDF during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, before studying classics and English literature at Hunter College in New York City.
She served as secretary of Mapai's parliamentary group and the coalition administration during the second Knesset (1951–55), before becoming secretary to the Israeli delegation at the United Nations. Between 1967 and 1974 she was secretary-general of the Na'amat organisation's Tel Aviv branch.
Re-elected in 1977, 1981, 1984 and 1988, Namir ran in the Labor Party leadership election in 1992, but came fourth. After retaining her seat in the 1992 elections she was appointed Minister of the Environment in Yitzhak Rabin's government, but was unpopular with staff in the ministry. In December that year she became Minister of Labour and Social Welfare (Rabin had kept the position free in the hope of attracting one of the ultra-orthodox parties to join the coalition), a role she retained when Shimon Peres formed a new government following Rabin's assassination.
