Binyamin Ze'ev Kahane

From Academic Kids

Binyamin Ze'ev Kahane (October 3, 1966December 31, 2000) was the son of Rabbi Meir Kahane.

Born in New York City, he emigrated to Israel with his family at the age of four, in 1971. He was a young Israeli Orthodox Jewish scholar and rabbi who was most famous for his leadership of Kahane Chai, a far Right Wing Zionist party that broke off of Meir Kahane's Kach after Meir Kahane's assassination in 1990.

Kahane and Kahane Chai advocated the forced transfer of all Arabs (including Israeli citizens) from Israel and the establishment of a Jewish theocracy in Israel. This world view is shared with Meir Kahane's original Kach movement, for which it was declared racist and disqualified in 1988 by the Israeli Supreme court, and with the other splinter group, the Baruch Marzel-led Kach. In 1994 both groups were declared terrorists and outlawed by the Israeli Government, following their statements in support of the mass killings of 29 Arabs in the Cave of the Patriarchs by Baruch Goldstein, himself a Kach member.

Kahane was the author of The Haggadah of The Jewish Idea, a commentary based on his father's teachings of the Passover Haggadah read at the Passover Seder. He wrote a Torah portion sheet called Darka Shel Torah ("The Way of the Torah") that was distributed for the weekly Torah portions.

Kahane was in New York a few weeks before he was assassinated where he met with Kahanist Jews in New York. They had a fundraising dinner and Kahane officiated at a wedding of a supporter.

He was assassinated killed along with his wife Talya in a Palestinian machine gun attack on December 31, 2000, as they were driving with their children from Jerusalem to their home in Kfar Tapuach, Samaria (Northern West Bank) during the current conflict in Israel known to some Jews as the Oslo War and to Arabs as the Al-Aqsa Intifada.
