HaMossad (literally translated as The Institute - "Ha" in Hebrew means "the") is Israel's civilian foreign intelligence and covert action organization, as opposed to Shin Bet (or SHABAK) which is the Israeli internal security service, and AMAN, which is Israel's military intelligence service. The full name is The Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations.

The Mossad is responsible for intelligence collection, covert operations, and counterterrorism, as well as bringing Jews to Israel from countries where official Aliyah agencies are forbidden, and protecting Jewish communities. Its director reports directly to the Prime Minister.
