Who Was Rav Kook?

Mystic and early Zionist, Rabbi Avraham Isaac Kook’s challenging and eclectic philosophy has inspired generations of Jews since his passing in 1935. Often misunderstood, Rav Kook’s role as one of the principal Rabbinic figures of the era was foundational for establishing a religious ideology for the the modern, secular and democratic state of Israel.

  2. It was an honor to be mentioned at your talk! I can only hope others will be inspired to sponsor these good talks. And I will again as my budget allows. 🙂
