The newest shiur –  in addition to the others at the yeshiva, including ones delivered by Rav Avrohom Yehoshua Soloveitchik, his brother, Rav Moishele Soloveitchik, and his sons, Rav Yankel and Rav Chaim – is delivered by Rav Avrohom Yehoshua’s third son, Rav Berel Soloveitchik.

Rav Berel delivers the shiur at his house. There are eight members of the new shiur, four Americans and four Israelis.

Rav Berel is named after his zaida, his father’s father, Rav Berel Soloveitchik zt”l, Rosh Yeshivas Brisk.

Yeshivas Brisk is a popular destination for American bochurim who go to learn in Eretz Yisroel post-bais medrash, drawing elite talmidim from the prestigious yeshivos of North America.

  1. R AY’s 2 older sons, Rav Yankel and Rav Chaim, have been saying shiur for years. R AY has a younger son named Velvel. HE does not say any shiurim yet. Perhaps you’re thinking of R Dovid’s son Velvel, (son in law of Rav Berel Povarsky) who says shiurim in his father’s yeshiva.
