Dr Dov Bar-Nir (Hebrew: דב בר-ניר‎, born Bernard Zilbershitz on 3 December 1911, died 7 May 2000) was a Belgium-born Israeli politician who served as a member of the Knesset for Mapam between 1949 and 1951.

Biography

Born in Brussels in Belgium, Bar-Nir studied social science at the University of Strasbourg, where he was awarded a PhD. He was amongst the founders of the Hashomer Hatzair movement in Belgium.

He made aliyah to Mandate Palestine in 1932, and joined kibbutz Ein HaHoresh, where he lived until 1956. He was a member of the Socialist League party, which later merged with the HaKibbutz HaArtzi movement to form the Hashomer Hatzair Workers Party, which he served as secretary of from its foundation in 1946 until its merger into Mapam in 1948.

In the 1949 elections he won a seat on Mapam's list. In 1950 he was sent to the United States to work as an emissary of Hashomer Hatzair, and on 10 April 1951, resigned from the Knesset, and was replaced by Menachem Ratzon.[1] Between 1951 and 1953 he served as secretary of Mapam's central committee, and later (from 1957 until 1960) as secretary of the World Union of Mapam.

After retiring from the Knesset, he published several books; Trends in Modern Art (1954), From Jabotinsky to Begin: Portrait of a Movement (1982), Politicide: An Israel Socialist Answers a Foreign Socialist (1982), The Confrontation: Ben-Gurion and Jabotinsky (1987) and Opinions Make Their Way”
