Rabbi Eliyahu Tzvi Younger


Rav Eliyahu Tzvi is a native of Los Angeles, the son of our own Mordechai and Tova Younger. With a set of grandparents who were both proud Beth Jacob members, Rabbi Younger’s roots in the community run deep. As a teenager, Eliyahu made off for the East Coast where he studied at the Long Beach and Passaic Yeshivos. Later he joined the prominent Brisker Kollel in Yerushalayim, where he developed the art of Talmudic analysis. While in Israel, Rav Eliyahu Tzvi married Tzirel (nee Samet) who joined him on his return to his hometown of LA. Tzirel is presently employed in the private sector. Over the years Rav Eliyahu Tzvi has developed a significant following of Baalai Batim who come to learn with him privately on a regular basis. The Kollel greatly appreciates this effort in this regard.
