About Shaul Chana HaCohen Kook


KOOK, SAUL ḤONE BEN SOLOMON ZALMAN (1879–1955), Israeli Hebrew writer and scholar. Kook, who was born in Grajewe (Poland), was a younger brother of Rabbi Abraham Isaac *Kook . He studied in yeshivot and with his brother, whom he followed, settled first in Jaffa in 1904, and later in Tel Aviv. Here he engaged in business, and was active in the city's various cultural and educational organizations and institutions.

At the same time, he contributed many valuable studies to various journals and periodicals relating to all fields of Jewish scholarship, including Bible, Hebrew linguistics, apocryphal, midrashic and talmudic, geonic and rabbinic literature, folklore, the history of the Jewish settlement in Ereẓ Israel, Hebrew liturgy, and other subjects. His studies were collected and published posthumously in two volumes as Iyyunim u-Meḥkarim (1959–63).
