The special figure of the late Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen (1935-1865) continues to illuminate for more than 70 years since his death. Thought and thought for generations to the worlds of hidden inner wisdom - the weight of Kabbalah, the talent for writing in a fluent and fluid style are just a tiny attempt to draw the lines of his character.
The late Rabbi Kook stood at the crossroads of the historical decisions of the Zionist movement, and was a full partner in realizing the vision of the Return to Zion of our time. His unequivocal determination to see the rebuilding of the Land of Israel as the fulfillment of the vision of the prophets of Israel, was to have an impact on both the Zionist movement and the religious public. The love of truth that he had for each and every one of Israel helped him to feel emotional closeness to all the leaders of the public in all shades of society, and it returned him with love and admiration.
The late Rabbi Eye Kook was born in Lithuania, where he studied with the Torah scholars, headed by the commissioner from Valuzin, where he served in two rabbinical positions. In 1904, he became "rabbi of Jaffa and the colonies." At the end of the First World War, he served - in a kind of temporary position - as the rabbi of the "Religious Holders" in London and upon his return to Israel in 1921) he was the Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem and while the Chief Rabbinate of Israel was founded by him, he was the first Chief Rabbi Israel.
His halakhic writings include the "clear halakhah" on the entire Talmud, when his vision was to attach a "halakhic clarification" to it and make it the Eretz Israel Talmud of the resurrection generation; Question and answer books for thousands, inquiries and commentaries. In the book series "Orot Hakodesh", and in other books of thought such as: "Orot", "Orot Hatshuva", "Orot HaTorah" and others, his rich spiritual world unfolds. His social involvement led him to establish in Jerusalem the "World Central Yeshiva" better known as the "Rabbi Center" from which grew Torah scholars and scholars who are integrated into all life systems in the country and the world.
The late Rabbi Kook is one of the first line of exemplary figures of all generations.
The face of the medal: In front of the medal is the radiant figure of the late Rabbi Maran against the background of his eloquent and vigorous handwriting, emphasizing some of his letters, from "clear halakhah" to his thoughtful writings, most of which are based on the significant name typical of his world.
