Levinger, Rabbi Moshe
- (1935- )Born in Jerusalem, Rabbi Levinger planned and initiated the Jewish return to Hebron at Passover in 1968 and continues to live there. He was involved in the creation of Gush Emunim and has been among its leaders and activists. In May 1990, he entered Eyal prison to begin serving a five-month jail sentence for causing the death of an Arab shopkeeper in Hebron in September 1988. He and his followers were among the most militant opponents of the Oslo process and especially the January 1997 agreement to withdraw the Israel Defense Forces from much of Hebron.
