The CULTURE AND SPORT MINISTRY (Hebrew : משרד התרבות והספורט, Misrad HaTarbut VeHaSport) is a new and relatively minor ministry in the Israeli cabinet .
Previously culture and sport had been part of other ministerial portfolios. Between 1949 and 1999, and again from 2003 until 2006, culture was part of the Education Minister portfolio. Similarly, sport was part of the Education Minister post between 1994 and 1999 and 2003 and 2006. Both culture and sport were combined with the Science and Technology post between 2006 and 2009, before being split into a separate post upon the formation of the Netanyahu government in March 2009.
