Yosef Shiloach (Hebrew: יוסף שילוח‎‎; July 9, 1941 – January 3, 2011) was an Israeli actor of Kurdish-Jewish origin.[1][2] Shiloach was considered by many in Israel one of the nation's most beloved actors, mostly thanks to his parts in many Bourekas Films, a series of films made primarily in the 1970s, portraying the life of Sepharadim in an exaggerated comic manner, where he played parts of people of Persian descent. He also played in a number of international films, such as I Love You Rosa, The House on Chelouche Street and Rambo III. Shiloach also dubbed Arik (Ernie) on the Israeli TV version of Sesame Street, Rechov SumSum.

Shiloach was born in 1941 in Kurdistan of Iran and emigrated to Israel at the age of 9.[3] He died on January 3, 2011, aged 69, after suffering from cancer for a long time.[3]
