Rabbi Chanan Morrison grew up in Pennsylvania and graduated with a B.A. in Mathematics from Yeshiva University (New York). Pursuing advanced Talmudic studies in Jerusalem, he spent the next seven years studying in Jerusalem yeshivot, including the famed Yeshivat Mercaz HaRav, founded by Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook in 1924.
Rabbi Morrison taught Jewish studies for several years in Harrisburg, PA, before returning to Israel. He and his family subsequently settled down in a small community in the Judean Desert.
In an effort to maintain contact with former students, Rabbi Morrison began emailing articles based on the writings of Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook. Over the years, the email list grew at a phenomenal rate, and it now benefits thousands of readers from all over the world. He is frequently featured on the Torah section of the Israel National News website, and his work can be read on his own website at http://www.ravkooktorah.org.
His second book, "Silver from the Land of Israel," was a finalist in the 2010 National Jewish Book in the category of Modern Jewish Thought and Experience.
