Goren, Rabbi Shlomo

   Born in Poland, he immigrated (see ALIYA) to Palestine in 1925. Shlomo Goren was educated at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and served as chief rabbi of Tel Aviv-Jaffa. He also served as chief chaplain of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and as Ashkenazi chief rabbi of Israel. In the Six-Day War (1967), he celebrated with IDF soldiers the reunification of Jerusalem at the Western Wall. In the 1970s and 1980s, he became increasingly associated with extreme factions of the West Bank settler movement. In 1993, he created controversy when he ruled that it was permissible according to Jewish law (Halacha) for IDF soldiers to disobey orders to evacuate Jewish settlements.
