Ze'ev Katz (Hebrew: זאב כץ‎‎, born 29 March 1923, died 27 April 1982) was an Israeli politician who served as a member of the Knesset for the Alignment between 1979 and 1981.

Biography[edit]

Born in Leipzig in Germany in 1923, Katz joined the Habonim youth movement in 1933. He made aliyah to Mandatory Palestine in 1938, and joined kibbutz Gesher as part of a Youth Aliyah programme.

In 1941 he volunteered to join the British Army. After being demobilised in 1946, he worked as a counsellor to child Holocaust survivors in Italy.

He was on the Alignment list for the 1977 Knesset elections, but failed to win a seat. However, he entered the Knesset on 12 January 1979 as a replacement for Aharon Yadlin,[1] who had resigned his seat. He lost his seat in the 1981 elections.

Katz died in April 1982 at the age of 59.
