Rosh Yeshiva Rabbeinu Yitzchok Elchonon (RIETS)
d. 20 Adar, 1971 (5731)
The Rav was born in Ostrolenka, Poland and studied at yeshivos in Lomza and Slobodka where he was among the outstanding students of Rav Dovid Tavil Meltcher and Rav Raphael Volozhiner. He received semichah (ordination) from Rav Shimon Shkop and again, in this country from Rabbi Yosef Rosen of Passaic, New Jersey.
He arrived in the United States in 1921 and was immediately appointed a rosh yeshiva at RIETS where he taught Torah to hundreds of students until his passing.
He authored two seforim: Degel Machane Ephraim volume one and Degel Machane Ephraim volume two in 1970. The second volume was lost in the mail before it was published. The author rewrote the entire safer from memory and it was posthumously published.
