Dalia Rabin-Pelossof is a former Israeli politician and daughter of the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

Rabin-Pelossof (born March 19, 1950) was born in Israel. She holds an L.L.B. and is an attorney by profession.

Elected to the Knesset Member in 1999 on the Center Party ticket, she served as Chairperson of the Ethics Committee and a member of the Constitution, Law and Justice Committee; the Committee for the Advancement of the Status of Women; the State Control Committee; and the Committee for the Advancement of the Status of the Child.

In March 2001, Rabin-Pelossof and two other Centre Party members broke away to establish a new faction, New Way Party. The day after forming the party, she was appointed Deputy Minister of Defense in Ariel Sharon's new government. However, later in the month, the other two New Way members resigned from the Knesset, leaving Rabin-Pelossof alone in the faction. On May 7, 2001, she joined the One Israel Party which later became Labor-Meimad.

She resigned from her ministerial post on August 1, 2002. She lost her seat in the 2003 elections.
