Rav Moshe Feinstein (March 3, 1895 - March 23, 1986) was the Rosh Yeshiva of Mesivta Tiferes Jerusalem. He later established a branch of the yeshiva in Staten Island, New York. He was commonly referred to as "Reb Moshe." That name became synonymous with with his Torah greatness, encyclopedic knowledge, compassion, generosity, piety, humility, faith, and countless other precious, sacred concepts.
Reb Moshe's greatest renown stemmed from a lifetime of responding to halachic queries posed by Jews in America and worldwide. He wrote about two thousand responsa on a huge range of issues that affect Jewish religious life and practice. The bulk of these were published in his classical work, "Igros Moshe." Reb Moshe's was universally recognized as the preeminent Torah sage and Posek of his generation, and people from around the world called upon him to answer their most complicated Halachic questions.
