Yoav Kish (Hebrew: יואב קיש; born 6 December 1968) is an Israeli pilot and politician.


Kish was born and raised in Tel Aviv, to a family of British-Jewish origin. His grandfather was Frederick Kisch, the highest-ranking Jew ever to serve in the British Army, and he held British citizenship until having to renounce it in 2015 as a condition of being allowed to take up a seat in the Knesset.[1] He holds an MBA from INSEAD. He was on the Likud Yisrael Beiteinu list for the 2013 Knesset elections, but failed to win a seat.

Prior to the 2015 elections he was placed 19th on the Likud list,[2] a slot reserved for the Tel Aviv region.[3] He was elected to the Knesset when Likud won 30 seats.[4]

Kish is married with three children and lives in Ramat Gan.
