YESHIVA CHOFETZ CHAIM OF RADIN
Rav Yisroel Mayer Kagan ZT"L (The Chofetz Chaim) founded the Yeshiva in 1864.
Until his passing in 1933, the Chofetz Chaim was recognized worldwide as the leader of
Klall Yisroel (World Jewry).
He spread his message of Torah teachings through the publishing of his twenty-one
books on the laws of daily living, charity, kindness, and careful speech (Refraining from
Loshon Horah (gossip) etc..
The Chofetz Chaim chose his son-in-law Rav Mendel Zaks Zt"l as Rosh HaYeshiva in
Radin. Upon Arriving to the US during WWII, Rav Zaks, known as Radiner Rosh Hayeshiva
gathered his surviving talmidim and restarted the Yeshiva and Kollel Kodshim in New
York with his son Rav Gershon Zaks the Rosh Hayeshiva Zt"l.
It is now over seventy years since the Yeshiva has been driven out from Radin and
Chofetz Chaim continues on the path set out by its founding father as a Mokom of Torah,
Chesed, Tfillah, and Avdus Hashem.
The current Roshei HaYeshiva have established a network for extensive communal
assistance reaching hundreds of families and individuals in their time of difficulty.
It is the Yeshvas goal and mission to continue of the path of our predecessors
perpetuating the growth of the Radiner Yeshiva as one of the preeminent Torah
institutions in the world.
