R. Eliezer Finkel (Leizer Yudel) was the son of R. Nosson Tzvi Finkel ("Der Alter fun Slabodka") and son-in-law of R. Eliyahu Baruch Kamai, head of the Mir Yeshivah, whose position he inherited. During the interbellum period, Mir attracted thousands of students, from across Europe and even America. Following World War Two, R. Finkel re-established the Mir in Jerusalem where it today reigns as the largest Yeshiva in the world. Rabbi Berlin (also known as Bar-Ilan, 1880-1949) was the son of the Netzi’v, and one of the leaders of the Mizrachi movement.
