Mr. Agmon specialises in administrative law and work with NGOs and nonprofit organisations, including those in the realm of religion and state. He is a long-time activist against religious coercion. He joined Hiddush in September 2016.

Born in Haifa (Aug. 27, 1973), Agmon studied law at the University of Haifa via the IDF academic reserve. After his service with the IDF Manpower Directorate, he moved to Tel Aviv and interned at "Adam, Teva, v'Din" (Israeli Union for Environmental Defence) and later worked there for a short period as a lawyer. Subsequently, he became the first legal advisor for "Let the Animals Live", Israel’s leading animal rights NGO. From 2004-2006, Agmon returned to work as a civilian for the IDF Manpower Directorate, serving as research project manager for the IDF's massive transition to the Negev Desert region, and later serving as acting head

of section in the Manpower Planning and Administration brigade of the IDF Manpower Directorate. In 2007 he received his master’s degree in political science (in the international relations track) from Tel Aviv University and is currently completing an additional master’s degree in environmental studies at Tel Aviv University.

Since 2007, Mr. Agmon has directed an independent law office specialising in work with NGOs and other civil society organisations, particularly in the fields of environmental advocacy, animal rights, issues of religion & state, and the struggle against religious coercion. Among other things, he wrote the legal manual for the NGO "Hofesh," a guide for secular Israelis on how to deal with various issues related to religious coercion in Israel.

Since 2016, Agmon has been living in Jerusalem. He and his partner are expecting the birth of their first daughter in the coming months.
