Change in Directors or Principal Officers

Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On January 26, 2014, memorial services were held for Mr. Robert Render, member of the Board of Directors of Zion Oil and Gas, Inc. (the "Company"), at the Gaylord E-Free Church, 1649 E M 32, Gaylord, Michigan 49735. Robert Render, age 83, was appointed a director in January 2011. Mr. Render previously served on the Company's Board of Directors from September 28, 2004 through June 16, 2009, the date of the Company's 2009 annual meeting of the shareholders whereupon he did not stand for re-election.

From 2003 until the present, Mr. Render has been a private investor and consultant. Mr. Render served from 1994 to 2002 as Chairman and CEO of the Green Thumb Companies and Milburn Peat, manufacturers and distributors of peat moss, soils and mulches for the lawn and garden industries. Prior thereto, from 1985 to 1992, he was a director of and consultant to Hyponex Corporation (NASDAQ) and thereafter, from 1992 to 1994, he was a consultant to the Scotts' Corporation (NYSE), the controlling shareholder of Hyponex. Between 1978 and 1985, Mr. Render served as Chairman, President and CEO of Hyponex Corporation (NASDAQ) previously known as Old Fort Industries. From 1964 until its acquisition by Old Fort Industries in 1969, Mr. Render served as President of Anderson Peat Company and, from 1969 to 1978, he served as Executive Vice President of Old Fort Industries. From 1952 to 1963, Mr. Render served as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Sno-Bol Company. In 1957 he founded Render Associates, a national sales company specializing in lawn and garden products which later merged into Anderson Peat Company. In 1962-1963 Mr. Render was President of the Christian Businessmen's Club in Pontiac, Michigan and in 1964-1965; he served as Chairman of the Industrial Group of the United Fund in Pontiac. In 1967-1968, Mr. Render was a member of the Executive Committee of the American Society of Testing and Materials and in 1969-1970; he served as President of the U.S. Peat Producers Association.

More importantly, as expressed by the Company's lead independent director Paul Oroian, Bob Render was "first a faithful man. I know that God has already put him to work on stewardship education. He was a gentleman. Always ready to share his passions and convictions. You could have an honest debate with Bob and walk away friends. He gave what he had. Not holding back. You knew where he stood. The world is a smaller place without him. My father once told me that a person only dies if they are forgotten. I will not forget Bob."
