Yiddishkeit: Rabbi Herman Branover
Rabbi Herman Branover (born 1931) is a Russian Israeli physicist and Jewish educator. He is best known in the Jewish world as an inspiring author, translator, publisher, and educator.
Branover is known in the world scientific community as the leading pioneer in the field of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). His research and development company Solmecs developed a non-conventional environmentally safe energy generator which has led to many useful spin-off technologies.
In his personal conduct he strictly adheres to the customs and mystical philosophy of Chabad Hasidism and, needless to say, wears a beret.
