Yisrael Rozen

Yisrael Rozen (Hebrew: ישראל רוזן) (born in 1941) is an Orthodox Jewish Israel rabbi. He founded the office for conversion to Judaism in the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and he is a judge there. He is also director of the Zomet Institute for the interface of halakhah and technology and the editor-in-chief of the annual journal Techumin published by that institute. He edits the weekly newsletter Shabbat Beshabbato and writes a weekly column therein. He writes commentaries about the Rabbinic interpretations of Tanakh (the Hebrew Bible).

Rabbi Rozen was born in Tel Aviv, learned in Yeshivat HaYishuv HeHadash and in Kerem BeYavneh, and founded the kollel in KBY. Afterward he studied electronics in Machon Lev and in Bar-Ilan University. Rabbi Rozen lives in Alon Shevut and is married with five children.

Rabbi Rozen is active in many areas. He helps implement technological innovations for halakhic observance at the Zomet Institute. These devices apply halakhic concepts to technological devices, mostly electronics, to enable using them within the rules of halakhah. He also writes and publishes articles on Tanakh.
