An Appeal for Zikui Harabbim

For some time we have been involved in the preparation of a special sefer about the life and practices of the leading posek and Rosh Yeshivah, Harav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach, zt”l. The sefer covers areas such as his bein adam laMakom, and the way he conducted himself with other people. The objective is to provide a generation that did not know him, and yearns to learn more about him, with a glimpse into his life and his ways.

As the alumni of Yeshivas Kol Torah for the 45 years during which the Rosh Yeshivah served as its leader are living today all over the world, we are not aware of the identity of many of them who would surely want to take part in this project. We have no way to contact them and to hear firsthand about their experiences with the Rosh Yeshivah or things that they witnessed.

Hence, we ask that every talmid or alumnus who sees this appeal, as well as any others who have personal memories or anecdotes of the Rosh Yeshivah, to please send it to or to call 972-52-7653459.

Best regards,

Tzvi B.
