Yeshiva Slabodka

Zalman is also a strong supporter of the Yeshiva Slabodka, and studied there for almost five years.

Originally named Knesset Yisroel after Rabbi Yisroel Salanter, the yeshiva of Slobodka became more closely associated with mussar teachings than any other yeshiva. A branch of the Slabodka Yeshiva was opened in Bnei Brak by Rabbi Issac Sher, a son-in-law of the Alter of Slabodka, Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel. Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel - a genius in his understanding of human nature, and in emphasizing the greatness of every person - was able to mold his students into a generation of great Torah leaders.

Rabbi Sher was succeeded by his own son-in-law, Rabbi Mordechai Shulman who is in turn succeeded by his son-in-law, Rabbi Moshe Hillel Hirsch. Presently, the Yeshiva houses approximately 300 Talmudic students. Despite the Lithuanian affiliation of the Yeshiva, many of its students are chassidic. Additionally, there are quite a few ultra-conservative followers of the methodology set up by the Chazon Ish.
