The Peace-Seeking Settler Rabbi

Video: A portrait of Menachem Froman, the peerless Gush Emunim leader who sought ties with Palestinians

Print Email

Rabbi Menachem Froman, the West Bank spiritual leader famous for his pioneering co-existence efforts with Palestinians, died on Monday, March 4, 2013. To many, “peacemaker” and “settler” are a contradiction in terms, but not so for Froman, who forged powerful ties with Palestinian leaders as he gathered a passionate following of Jews, particularly in Tekoa, the town he led. In this video profile, drawn from footage taken over the past few years, the rabbi reflects on what it means to be, as he put it, “a citizen of God,” and explains why “loving the Palestinians” is the essence of his Judaism.
