The Natziv was the eldest of his family, son of Rav Yaakov, who was a merchant and talmid chacham in Mir. He studied at the Mir yeshiva until 13.5, then Rabbi Yitzhak of Volozhin (head of the Volozhin yeshiva) took him as a son-in-law. When his father-in-law died in 1849, the Natziv’s brother-in-law, Rabbi Eliezer Yitzhak, became head of the yeshiva and the Natziv his deputy. Rav Eliezer died young, in 1853, and the Natziv became head of the yeshiva. His son, Rabbi Haim Berlin, served as Chief Rabbi of Moscow and for a short time as head of the Volozhin yeshiva. In 1906 he moved to Jersualem and after Rav Shmuel of Salant’s death was crowned the Rabbi of the Ashkenazi community of Jerusalem, despite refusing this title. | Binding is falling apart and disconnected.
