Gedolim Grant Haskamos for 20-Year-Old Bochur’s Sefer


eliyahu-tzvi-yakobovitchGedolei Torah in Eretz Yisroel are praising a 550 page sefer written by a 20-year-old bochur, Eliyahu Tzvi Yakobovitch.

The bochur who learns at the Central Tomchei Tmimim Lubavitcher Yeshiva in the Israeli village of Kfar Chabad.

Eliyahu Tzvi’s sefer of chiddushim and discussions is focused on major sugyos in Gemara Maseches Kesubos.

His sefer has been praised by gedolei Torah including Rav Yosef Sholom Elyashiv, Rav Aharon Leib Steinman, Rav Chaim Kanievsky, Rav Ovadiah Yosef and Rav Berel Povarsky, all of whom granted haskamos to the sefer.

Eliyahu Tzvi great-grandfather was Rav Aharon Yakobovitch zt”l, who, like Rav Elyashiv, was a son-in-law of the known Tzaddik of Yerushalayim, Rav Aryeh Levin zt”l.

Eliyahu Tzvi’s father is Rav Tuvia Yakobovitch, a mashgiach in the Ohr Simcha-Bucharim Yeshiva in Kfar Chabad.
