The Ministry for Social Equality (Hebrew: המשרד לשוויון חברתי‎), till August 2015 called the Ministry for Senior Citizens (Hebrew: המשרד לאזרחים ותיקים‎, Misrad LeAzrahim Vatikim), is a government ministry in Israel. The ministerial post was created following the coalition agreement between Kadima and Gil (the Pensioners' Party) after the 2006 elections, although the ministry itself was not formed until a vote of approval by the Knesset on 25 July 2007.[1]
