The interwar period saw a Golden Age for the Telz Yeshiva in Lithuania. Under the strong leadership of Rabbi Yosef Leib Bloch (1860-1930), the Yeshiva grew and spawned an entire empire of educational institutions. High Schools, girls schools, Teacher’s Seminaries, Kollel and more were all part of the great Telz infrastructure. As a powerful speaker, R’ Yosef Leib and later his son R’ Avraham Yitzchak (1891-1941) played a role on the national level as a leader in the Agudas Yisroel. Telz developed a unique intellectual brand of Mussar, which was given over as “Shiurei Daas”. In honor of the recent yahrtzeit of Rabbi Mordechai Gifter (1916-2001), one of the greatest products of the Telz Yeshiva, here’s another installment about this immortal institution.
