ago as chief rabbi of Tel Aviv,

It is hard to imagine Zahal with-
out Rabbi Goren. Defense Minister
Moshe Dayan appealed a short
time ago to Rabbi Goren not to
leave Zahal. Rabbi Goren there-
fore is not in a hurry to take up
the post of Chief Rabbi of Tel
Aviv. He thinks there will be no
harm for the inhabitants of the
city if duties are directed and
supervised by the Sephardi chief
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef only.
Rabbi Goren is popular in high-
est military circles, because he
adopts a state attitude toward all
military religious problems and al-
ways tries to find a synthesis and
peaceful coexistence between a
religious and non-religious soldier
in Zahal. This spirit can be noticed
in all military camps and positions
on the front, where non-religious
soldiers are always ready to
deputize on guards and other
duties for religious soldiers dur-
ing the time of prayers.
The possibility is not excluded
that when new elections for the
two Chief Rabbis of Israel are
held in March 1971, Rabbi Goren

He had to deal many times with
tragic cases of soldiers killed on
the front, but each time he found

express feelings of pity, in order
to avoid tragedies. Several times
he gathered with his own hands
the burnt bones and parts of dead
bodies of Zahal soldiers in bunk-
ers, tankers and armored cars. It
was difficult to identify these
bodies, but Rabbi Goren never gave
up. He did whatever he could,
in order to ensure a religious
