Detail Description

Card with halakhic decisions by R. Shmaryahu Yosef Chaim Kanievsky (born January 8, 1928), irabbinic scholar, posek, and a leading authority in Haredi Jewish society. R. Kanievsky was born in Pinsk to R. Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky (also known as the Steipler Gaon) and Rebbitzen Miriam Karelitz, sister of R. Avraham Yeshayahu Karelitz (also known as the Chazon Ish). He married Batsheva, daughter of R. Yosef Sholom Eliashiv (grandson of Rav Shlomo Elyashiv, also known as the Leshem) and granddaughter of R. Aryeh Levin.

During the 1948 Israeli War of Independence, R. Kanievsky, then a student at the Lomza Yeshiva, was conscripted for temporary army service in the general mobilization. He was assigned to stand guard on a large hill near Jaffa.

Rav Chaim's wife died in 2011. He lives in Bnei Brak and receives thousands of visitors every year from Jews seeking religious advice. Kanievsky is the official rabbi and spiritual guide for the nonprofit organization Belev Echad which was founded in Israel on 2011 and is dedicated to assist sick and disabled children and adults.
