Linor is Israel’s first public lobbyist - representing the public’s interest in the Israeli parliament and fighting commercial lobbyists on behalf of the people. Born in Be’er Sheva and raised in Gan Yavne, Linor has always strived to be a public servant. After serving in the IDF’s elite 8200 Intelligence Unit, she joined the Jewish Agency, studied law and political science at Tel Aviv University and passed the Israeli bar. She later completed an M.A. in gender studies. During her three years as a parliamentarian assistant, she was involved in a variety of political and diplomatic activities and served as a JD (Jewish diplomat) to the World Jewish Congress. She was later appointed vice president of regulation and government affairs at the Israeli Farmers Federation. Being exposed to all this behind the scenes activity, Linor saw firsthand how a small number of lobbyists, representing the wealthy and the powerful, yield undue influence on our elected representatives. This compelled her to become a part of Lobby99 as Israel’s first public lobbyist. This first-of-its-kind organization aims to represent the “unrepresented 99%.” Through Lobby99 thousands of Israelis joined a crowd-funded initiative to send one person to fight for the public interest on their behalf. With the support of the Israeli media and caring citizens, Linor takes an active part in the Israeli law-making process, and has achieved significant results in areas such as banking, transparency, corruption prevention, taxation, natural royalties, and more. Linor is married and lives in Tel Aviv. She is a mother of two, a sister of two, and a daughter of two.
