Rav Shlomo Katz
I was born in 1984 and was raised by my wonderful parents in the Kensington neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. For elementary school I attended the Yeshiva of Brooklyn. At age 13, I left Brooklyn to dorm in the Yeshiva of Staten Island where I learned for 6 years under the leadership of R’ Reuven Feinstein, R’ Gershon Weiss and many other extraordinary rebbeim. At age 19, I left America and headed to Eretz Yisroell, where I learned in the Yeshiva of R’ Dovid Soleveichik and attended his shiur for 3 years. After this time, I returned to America to continue learning at Beth Medrash Govohah of Lakewood. There I remained for six months, until deciding to return to R’ Dovid Soleveichik for one more zman. After that zman, in which I got engaged and married to my Eshes Chayil, I started learning in Reichman’s Kollel. I remained there for over 7 years and finished learning numerous mesechtas in depth. I then joined the Kollel of the Center for Kehilla Development, where I am now continuing to learn and finish mesechtos, in addition to learning halacha in depth and enjoying the broad range of limudim.
