he is like the Rush Limbaugh of Israel.
Rabbi Aviner has become a ubiquitous presence in Israel. He has published hundreds of books and articles. His talks and responsa appear monthly in the Yeshiva's journal, Iturei Cohanim. While his opinions are frequently printed in Israeli newspapers, Rav Aviner also contributes weekly to four parashah sheets, Ma'aynei Ha-Yeshu'ah, Be-Ahavah U-Be-Emunah of Machon Meir, Rosh Yehudi, and Olam Katan, which are distributed every Shabbat in shuls throughout Israel.
The rabbi hosts two weekly radio programs, has a video blog (www.video.maale.org.il), teaches weekly classes, and gives talks in many different venues. The yeshiva also sends out weekly teachings of Rav Aviner in Hebrew, English, French, and Spanish, and has an English blog which is updated on a daily basis (www.ravaviner.com). In addition to these scheduled events, Rav Aviner also makes himself available to hundreds of people from all walks of life who come to him with questions via mail, telephone, fax, e-mail, text messages, his radio show, and his video blog Q&A.
Two years later, he also became the Rosh Yeshiva of the new-established Yeshivat Ateret Yerushalayim (formerly known as Ateret Cohanim). Located in the Old City of Jerusalem, Rav Aviner's yeshiva is the yeshiva closest to Har HaBayit (the Temple Mount). In its more than twenty-year history, Yeshivat Ateret Yerushalayim has produced rabbis, teachers, educators, and officers in the Israel Defense Forces, while also promoting the building and settling of the city of Jerusalem.
