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
