In this house on Tuesday, September 1, 1935, the late Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook passed away. Rabbi Kook founded the Chief Rabbinate of Eretz Yisrael, and was the first Chief Rabbi to head it in 1921-1935. He was the founder and head of the Merkaz Harav yeshiva, and one of the greatest leaders of the nation of the last century.
The building served as Dr. Zellingers convalescent home, where Rabbi Kook stayed for the last summer months of his life until his death, a few days before he turned 70.
