Harav Kook's yortzeit, 3 Elul, 79 years after his passing

Harav Avraham YItzchak Hacohen Kook, the first Chief Rabbi of Eretz Yisrael, appointed by the Britixh Mandate authorities, did not live to see the birth of the State of Israel.

But he is widely regarded as the father of modern religious Zionism for his embracing of the secular Zionist movement as Hashem's instrument of bringing the Geula - the redemption of the Land and Nation of Israel.

On Harav Kook's yortzeit, 3 Elul, thousands of religious Zionist Jews from Israel and abroad, including the students of YBA Yeshivat Hesder Hakotel, converged at his grave site on Har Hazeitim (the Mount of Olives) to pay tribute to his blessed memory and his prophetic vision.
