Wheelchair user Akiva Mafi doused his body in petrol at a bus stop in protest over welfare cuts and living costs.
The 45-year-old is the second victim to have died from self-immolation in recent weeks in Israel.
Moshe Silman set himself alight during a mass demonstration on 14 July against the country's spiralling living costs.
He was the first Israeli to take such an extreme step to protest social injustice and financial hardship.
A spokesperson for Tel HaShomer hospital said Mr Mafi had died of severe injuries sustained after he set himself on fire on 22 July.
Passers-by had managed to put out the flames but Mr Mafi suffered burns to 80% of his body.
