A Great Leader of Israel has Passed – Rabbi Moshe Levinger, obm

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

The Women in Green movement is pained by the great loss to the People of Israel upon the passing of Rabbi Moshe Levinger, father of renewed Jewish settlement throughout the Land of Israel after the Six Day War.

Rabbi Levinger blazed the trail for glorious settlement throughout Judea and Samaria; he was the driving spirit that inspired the great movement together with his wife Rabbanit Miriam. The trailblazers of settlement in Binyamin and Samaria were his students.

His faith, courage, audacity and the love for the People of Israel resulted in the first Jewish community in Judea. He established a city that carries all of the banners of Zionism: settlement, absorption of immigrants and security. Thanks to him, Kiryat Arba-Hevron is a symbol of harmonious life among religious and secular, immigrants and long-time citizens from all sectors of the People.

Rabbi Levinger was a symbol of simplicity, always traveled by hitchhiking or by bus, despised materialism, was always on a mission, always active for the People of Israel and the Land of Israel. He did not engage in small talk, everything always revolved around the great goal – the Land of Israel.

He died on the eve of the anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem. He always corrected us and said: the liberation of the Land of Israel.

A very great spiritual presence, who knew how to combine the vision with reality, has gone from us.

May we be comforted in the building of the Land of Israel

Rabbi Moshe Levinger ZT”L

Saturday, May 16th, 2015

Rabbi Moshe Levinger, born in Jerusalem in 1935, passed away on Shabbat, on the eve of Jerusalem Reunification Day.

Rabbi Levinger was a leading figure in the Religious-Zionist camp and helped organize the resettlement of Gush Etzion after 1967. Gush Etzion had been emptied of Jews following the 1948 Kfar Etzion massacre. He was a founder of the Gush Emunim movement.

Rabbi Levinger is most remembered for reestablishing Jewish life in Hebron and establishing the town of Kiryat Arba.

He began the process in 1968, when he rented some rooms in a Hebron hotel, and then refused to leave until the government allowed him to move to a former army base, which ultimately became the town of Kiryat Arba.

Rabbi Levinger, married to Miriam, had 11 children and 50 grandchildren.

The funeral will be held on Sunday at 12:30 PM, starting at Maarat Hachpelah (The Tomb of the Patriarchs) in Hebron.

Hoax Kidnapping Duo To Face Indictments

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Niv Asraf and Eran Nagauker are expected to face indictments next week after faking the kidnapping of Asraf last week, near the Arab village of Beit Ayoun and The Jewish town of Kiryat Arba.

Thousands of soldiers, police and Shabak officers took part in the 8 hour search for the supposedly missing man, who was hiding in a wadi in Kiryat Arba with food provisions and a sleeping bag.

It is not yet known why they faked the kidnapping, but it may have been done to impress a girl.
