Aryeh Gamliel (Hebrew: אריה גמליאל‎‎, born 11 March 1951) is a former Israeli politician who served as a member of the Knesset for Shas between 1988 and 2003.


Born in Beersheba, Gamliel was educated at a religious high school and a Talmudic College, before working as head of a Talmudic College.

He was first elected to the Knesset on Shas' list in 1988. After being re-elected in 1992, he was appointed Deputy Minister of Housing and Construction in Yitzhak Rabin's government, but resigned on 9 September 1993.

After retaining his seat again in the 1996 elections he was appointed Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs, a position which he served in (aside from two brief breaks in August 1997 and January/February 1998) until the 1999 elections. He retained his seat again in the elections (in which he was placed second on the list after Aryeh Deri),[1] but lost it in the 2003 elections.
