Binyamin Ze'ev Kahane

Binyamin Ze'ev Kahane ( _he. בנימין זאב כהנא, born 3 October 1966, died 31 December 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 breakaway from his father's Kach party after his assassination in 1990. Both Kach and Kahane Chai were later outlawed.

Kahane was the author of [http://www.kahanebooks.com "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 [http://www.hameir.org "Darka Shel Torah"] ("The Way of the Torah") that was distributed for the weekly Torah portions.

He was shot near Ofra, an Israeli settlement, along with his wife Talya on 31 December 2000. A statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office in 2001 announced the arrest of three members of Force 17 who were allegedly involved in the killing. According to the statement, PLO leader Col. Mahmoud Damra was responsible for arming and instructing the three men, who were identified as Talal Ghassan (a senior Force 17 member in Ramallah) Marzouk Abu Naim and Na'man Nofel. However, in 2007 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shawish "Khaled Shawish"] was arrested for the attack.
