Born in Lithuania in 1899, Rav Elazar Menachem Man Shach (אלעזר מנחם מן שך) studied in several of the famous pre-war yeshivos in Europe including Ponevezh, Slabodka and Mir. In 1934 he was appointed the Rosh Yeshiva of Navordok – a position he held for 2 years.

After emigrating to Eretz Yisroel he joined the Ponevezh yeshiva as one of its Roshei Yeshiva (deans) – a position he held until his passing in 2001.

He is credited with promoting the modern style of yeshivos and kollels for full-time Torah study and was considered the Godol Hador (primary spiritual leader) by thousands of Ashkenazi-orthodox Jews around the world.

He founded the Degel Hatorah party in 1988 which he led until his passing in 2001 when he was succeeded by Rav Elyashiv. In 1992 together with Gerrer Rebbe – The Lev Simcha – he merged the 2 major Hareidi political parties into one.
