Rabbi Abraham Isaac HaKohen Kook (1865-1935) | The first Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Israel, among the fathers of religious Zionism and one of the most influential rabbis of the 20th century. Born in Latvia. In 1904, he immigrated to Eretz Israel to serve as rabbi of Jaffa. During WWI he served as rabbi of a community in London, where he also worked to approve the Balfour Declaration. In 1919, he returned to Israel and was appointed rabbi of Jerusalem. In 1921, he was one of the initiators of the Israeli Chief Rabbinate and elected to head it, as the chief Ashkenazi rabbi. In 1924 he founded “Mercaz HaRav" in Jerusalem - the first Zionist yeshiva. Rabbi Kook saw Zionism as the embodiment of the redemption of the people of Israel in its land. As a public leader he acted for the unity of the people through advanced rulings, by bridging cultural gaps and by bringing the secular pioneers closer. His thought combined halakhah, kabbalah and philosophy, and dealt deeply with Jewish existence in the modern era. His figure and work influence to this day the character of the State of Israel in general and religious Zionism in particular. Died at age 69 of cancer.
