Sarah Doron (Hebrew: שרה דורון‎‎, 20 May 1922 – 3 November 2010) was an Israeli politician who served as a Minister without Portfolio from July 1983 until September 1984.


Born in Kaunas in Lithuania, Doron made aliyah to Mandatory Palestine in 1933. She attended high school in Tel Aviv, and was later elected to the city's council, where she chaired the municipal education committee.

A chairwoman of Liberal Women's Organization, she was elected to the Knesset in 1977 on Likud's list. Re-elected in 1981, she was appointed Minister without Portfolio by Menachem Begin on 5 July 1983. She remained a cabinet member when Yitzhak Shamir formed a new government in October 1983.

Although Doron retained her seat in the 1984 elections, she was left out of the national unity government cabinet. She was re-elected again in 1988, but lost her seat in the 1992 elections.

Doron died on 2 November 2010 at the age of 88.
