Deeply influential, Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel was the founder of the Slabodka yeshiva, in Kovno, Lithuania. During his lifetime, he molded many who would eventually become the heads of most of the Lithuanian-style yeshivas that were established in the United States and Israel during the 20th century, and which continue to grow dramatically in the 21st century. The Alter of Slabodka did not author any books or essays personally. Written material in his hand is very scarce.
