Porat was hospitalized on the eve of Rosh Hashana and passed away at his home after suffering from cancer. He was 67.
"Hanan Porat dedicated his life to building Eretz Yisrael, and to educating generations of national religious students toward the love of the land of Israel, and the people of Israel," Netanyahu said.
