Silvan Shalom (help·info) (Hebrew: ציון סילבן משה שלום‎ (officially Tzion Silvan Moshe Shalom), born 4 October 1958) is an Israeli politician, member of the Knesset for Likud and the country's Vice Prime Minister and Minister for Regional Development. He previously served as the country's Foreign Minister and Finance Minister.

Born in Gabès, Tunisia to the Sephardi Spanish Jewish Beit Shalom dynasty, Shalom made aliyah to Israel in 1959. Like most Israelis, he inducted into the Israel Defense Forces at the age of 18 and achieved the rank of Sergeant.

Shalom attended Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beersheba, from which he received a BA in Economics as well as CPA. certification. He later attended Tel Aviv University, from which he received an LLB law degree as well as an MA in Public Policy.
