Oded Forer (Hebrew: עוֹדֵד פוֹרֵר, born 30 May 1977) is an Israeli politician who currently serves as Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development and Minister for the Development of the Periphery, the Negev and the Galilee. He was previously a member of the Knesset for Yisrael Beiteinu from 2015 to 2021.
Forer was born and raised in Rehovot. His father, Shuki Forer, served as the city's mayor. His paternal great-grandfather was one of the first pioneers to settle in Rehovot during the First Aliyah. Forer was an officer in the Israeli Navy. He worked as a political consultant for Education Minister Limor Livnat between 2001 and 2005 and served as secretary of the Israeli Council for Culture and Arts. In 2005, he founded a consulting company.
Forer is a graduate of the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya, with a Bachelor of Law and Administration and a Masters in Political Communication. He is married with three children and lives in Rehovot.
In 2011, he joined Yisrael Beiteinu, becoming chairman of its youth division. He was placed sixteenth on the party's list for the 2013 Knesset elections. However, after Yisrael Beiteinu formed a joint list with Likud, he was placed 43rd, failing to win a seat.
Prior to the 2015 Knesset elections he was placed eighth on the Yisrael Beiteinu list. Although he failed to enter the Knesset when the party won six seats, he was moved up to seventh on the list after Ilan Shohat chose not to take his seat, allowing Robert Ilatov to serve in his stead. In September 2015, Sharon Gal chose to leave the Knesset, allowing Forer to take his seat on 4 September. He was subsequently re-elected in elections in April 2019, September 2019 and 2020.
After being re-elected again in the 2021 elections he was appointed Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development and Minister for the Development of the Periphery, the Negev and the Galilee in the thirty-sixth government. He subsequently resigned from the Knesset under the Norwegian Law and was replaced by Limor Magen Telem.
