The fourteenth government of Israel (Hebrew: מֶמְשֶׁלֶת יִשְׂרָאֵל הַאַרְבַּע עֶשְׂרֵה, translit. Memshelet Yisra'el HaArba esre) was formed by Golda Meir on 17 March 1969, following the death of Prime Minister Levi Eshkol on 26 February. She kept the same national unity government coalition, including the newly formed Alignment alliance of the Labor Party and Mapam, as well as Gahal, the National Religious Party, the Independent Liberals, Poalei Agudat Yisrael, Progress and Development, Cooperation and Brotherhood. The only change to the cabinet was the scrapping of the Minister of Information post, with the previous post-holder Yisrael Galili becoming a Minister without Portfolio instead.

2 Kol had been elected to the Knesset on the Independent Liberals list, but had resigned after being appointed to the cabinet.
3 Although Barzilai and Bentov were not Knesset members, both were members of Mapam.
