Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky (affectionately known as “Rav Chaim” by all) was the universally accepted leader of the Litvish Yeshiva world and was its ultimate Posek.

This framed artwork of Rav Chaim Kanievsky is rendered in laser cut stainless steel and acrylic.

The dramatic contrast between the brushed steel, matt, laser cut outs, and the shiny, black acrylic background, combine to create a strong interactive artwork.

Rav Chaim was known for his diligence in Torah study, and found that preparing and giving shiurim took too much time from his daily 20 hour self-imposed learning schedule.

Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky (affectionately known as “Rav Chaim” by all) was the universally accepted leader of the Litvish Yeshiva world and was its ultimate Posek.

He was born in 1928 in Pinsk, Poland (now part of Belarus).

His father was known as “The Steipler Ga’on” in the yeshiva world, and was similarly recognized as the leading halachic authority of the previous generation.

R’ Chaim was also the son-in-law of R’ Eliyashiv and the nephew of the Chazon Ish.

Rav Chaim was known for his diligence in Torah study, and found that preparing and giving shiurim took too much time from his daily 20 hour self-imposed learning schedule.

He is known to have completed all of Mishnayos, and Babylonian and Yerushalmi Talmuds with the major commentaries every year in time for an erev-Pesach siyyum.

He was not only revered and consulted by the orthodox community, but his advice was also sought by various governmental ministers in matters of national importance.

He passed away on Shushan Purim in 2022 and his funeral was attended by over 700,000 male mourners, making it possibly the largest ever public event in Israel.
