Rabbi Moshe Levinger, 1935-2015

Levinger was a leader in the settler movement. He brought 30 families to a Hebron hotel in 1968 to demand and win the right to establish the first permanent Jewish presence in the city since 1929. He founded Gush Emunim (Bloc of the Faithful) in 1974 to expand settlements. In 1988, after his car was attacked in Hebron, he shot at nearby Palestinians and killed one. He served three months in prison.
