Rabbi Yisrael Altusky
Rosh Kollel Halacha

Born on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, NY, Rabbi Altusky moved to Eretz Yisrael at the age of 14 years old. Until the age of 23, he learned under the guidance of his illustrious grandfather, Maran Hagaon Harav Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg זצוק''ל and his legendary father, Rabbeinu Hagaon Harav Chaim Dov Altusky זצוק''ל in Yeshivas Torah Ore. From there he returned to the United States and studied in the Mir Yeshiva in Brooklyn, NY. With the inception of Kollel Aram Tzova in Mexico City, he traveled to Mexico as one of the founding members. For the next seven years, he touched the lives of countless individuals throughout the Jewish community of Mexico City. As Rosh Kollel Halacha, he mesmerizes the talmidim with the breadth of his knowledge as well as enables them to deepen their own personal experience of Torah learning and avodas Hashem.
