Kook, Rabbi Zvi Yehuda

(1891-1982)
   Born in Lithuania, he was educated at Jewish religious schools as well as at universities in Germany. He immigrated (see ALIYA) with his parents to Palestine in 1904, where his father, Rabbi Avraham Yitzhak Hacohen Kook, later became the first chief Ashkenazi rabbi. He became head of the Merkaz Harav Yeshiva upon his father's death and published numerous religious and other commentaries. He was an ardent Zionist, participated in Gush Emunim activities, and became the movement's spiritual mentor.
