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