Bio Information:
Rav Henoch Leibowitz, an only child, was born in 1918 in Salcininkai, Lithuania. The Rosh Yeshiva came to America in 1926 when his father Rav Dovid was hired by Mesivta Torah Vodath as a teacher. In 1933, Rav Dovid left Torah Vodath and founded Yeshivas Rabbeinu Yisrael Meir HaKohen. His father’s death in 1941 left him in charge of the fledgling yeshiva while still in his early 20s. Rav Henoch would spend the rest of his life leading the yeshiva as an International Orthodox Jewish icon. Sadly, the Rosh Yeshiva left no children.
