Dr Einat Wilf (Hebrew: עינת וילף‎, born 1970) is an Israeli politician who currently serves as a member of the Knesset for the Labor Party



Wilf was educated at the Hebrew University Secondary School. During her national service she was an Intelligence Officer in Unit 8200. She studied government and fine arts at Harvard University, receiving a BA, before being awarded an MBA by INSEAD in France and a PhD by the University of Cambridge.

Wilf served as a Foreign Policy Advisor to Vice Prime Minister Shimon Peres, a strategic consultant with McKinsey & Company in New York City and a General Partner with Koor Corporate Venture Capital in Israel. Upon her return to Israel Wilf worked as a Senior Fellow with the Jewish People Policy Planning Institute and a weekly columnist for the daily newspaper Israel HaYom. Wilf also taught social entrepreneurship at Sapir College, as well as a frequent guest on Israeli radio and television talk shows and a member of the President's Conference Steering Committee.

In 2007, she ran for the presidency of the World Jewish Congress. However, she withdrew before the actual vote, and Ronald Lauder was elected president.

A member of the Labor Party, Wilf won fourteenth place on the party's list for the 2009 Knesset elections. Although Labor won only 13 seats, Wilf entered the Knesset on 10 January 2010 as a replacement for Ophir Pines-Paz,[1] who had retired from politics.

Wilf is the author of two books which explore key issues in Israeli society. Her first book, “My Israel, Our Generation”, about Israel’s past and future from the perspective of the younger generation, was published in Hebrew in 2003 and in English in 2006. Her second book, "Back to Basics: How to Save Israeli Education (at no additional cost)", which offers a detailed and feasible policy proposal for saving Israel's ailing education system, was published in Hebrew in 2008 by Yedioth Ahronot.
