Limor Livnat (help·info) (Hebrew: לימור לבנת‎, born 22 September 1950) is an Israeli politician who currently serves as a member of the Knesset for Likud, and as the country's Minister of Culture & Sport.

Born in Haifa, Livnat is the only member of Knesset not to have a secondary education. She barely made ends meet working in advertising and had to rely on financial handouts from her parents.

She first entered the Knesset on 14 April 1992, shortly before the 1992 elections, as a replacement for Haim Corfu. She retained her seat in the election, and in her first term served as chairwoman of the Committee for the Advancement of the Status of Women, the Subcommittee on Laws of Personal Status and the Parliamentary Committee for Investigating Murder of Women by their Spouses.
