He was the beloved Rosh Yeshiva of Torah Ore in Yerushalayim which he relocated from New York in the 1960’s. He was well known for his great love for the mitzvah of tzitzis and wore numerous pairs at the same time.
Bring his middos into your life, in your home, your office and everywhere in between with his modern metal portrait.
This intense, modern portrait is comprised of a mixture of different textures.
The dramatic contrast between the brushed steel, matt, laser cut outs, and the shiny, black acrylic background, combine to create a strong interactive presence, which can be experienced from different angles.
Rav Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg (רב חיים פינחס שיינברג) was born in 1910 in Ostrov, Poland.
His parents emigrated to the United States where he learnt first in the yeshiva of Rav Yaakov Yosef Herman who would later become his father-in-law, progressing on to Beis Medrash LeRabbonim in Connecticut and then RIETS where he studied together with Rav Avigdor Miller, Rav Mordechai Gifter and other future leaders of American Jewry.
At age 19 he married and moved to Poland where he learnt in the Mir Yeshiva for 5 years.
In 1935 he became Mashgiach of Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim in Queens – a position he held for 2 years until he opened Yeshivas Torah Ore.
In 1963 he relocated the yeshiva to the new neighborhood of Mattersdorf on the outskirts of Yerushalayim and led it until his passing at the age of 101 in 2012.
He was well known for his english-language shiurim which he gave in the neighborhood and was famous for wearing numerous pairs of tzitzis – sometimes up to 150 at once, although he never fully divulged the reason for wearing so many.
