Editorial Reviews

Review

Rabbi Morrison has published another masterful work, bringing the Torah of Rav Kook and his son Rav Tzvi Yehuda Kook to the English-speaking world. This time, however, it is the Torah of "the deeds of our Rabbis."Stories From The  Land of Israel includes stories from the lives of these spiritual giants, providing important lessons about love for all Jews and for the Land of Israel. I found this book to be informative and inspirational. 
Rabbi Shmuel Jablon, executive director of Mercaz Female


"Rabbi Morrison has performed a great service in collecting and retelling these inspiring stories of Rav Abraham Isaac Kook, the first Chief Rabbi of pre-state Israel, and his son Rav Tzvi Yehudah Kook, who carried on his father's spiritual legacy during the tumultuous years during which Israel achieved statehood and thereafter."
Rabbi Dovid Sears, noted author and director of the New York Breslov Center

Stories from the Land of Israel relates Rav Kook's life through an eloquent retelling of stories that emphasize Rav Kook's boundless love for his people and his land, and the profound impact of this love on the people he met. This account reveals vital dimensions of Rav Kook's personality, and shows how the force of his personality, just as much as the power and profundity of his writings, account for his enduring influence.
Rabbi Yedidya Sinclair, translator of Rav Kook's Introduction to Shabbat Ha'aretz

About the Author

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 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.
