Rav Yisroel Mayer Kagan ZT”L (“The Chofetz Chaim”) founded the Yeshiva in 1864. Until his passing in 1933, he was recognized worldwide as the leader of Klall Yisroel (World Jewry). He spread his message of Torah teachings through proclamations, lectures and through the publishing of his twenty-one books on the laws of daily living, charity, kindness, and careful speech (Refraining from Loshon Horah (gossip) etc.).
The Chofetz Chaim picked his son-in-law Rav Mendel Zaks Zt”l as Rosh HaYeshiva in Radin. Upon Arriving to the US during WWII, Radiner Rosh Hayeshiva gathered his surviving talmidim and restarted the Yeshiva and Kollel Kodshim in New York with his son Rav Geshon Zaks the Rosh Hayeshiva Zt”l.
It is now sixty years since the Yeshiva has been driven out from Radin and Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim continues on the path set out by its founding fathers as a guiding beacon of light in these dark, confusing and turbulent times. In addition to our primary mission to deliver unparalleled quality in Jewish Torah education, the Yeshiva is a center of kindness, charity and assistance to those who are less fortunate. The Yeshiva has established a network for extensive communal assistance reaching out to hundreds of families and individuals in their time of need.
The Yeshiva is under the leadership of the Roshei HaYeshiva

When I was there it was a full fledged branch with guys regularly doing the shuttle between rochester and then forest hills.
To avoid confusion, what if we instead identified as talmidim of RSA.July 8, 2011 2:29 am at 2:29 am #783852chofetzchaimMember
Hmmm, I wonder what Yeshiva I’m from?July 8, 2011 12:20 pm at 12:20 pm #783853A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
From my perspective, as a Woman Outside of Brooklyn who knows many talmidim, past and present of RSA, the quality that stands out in my mind about these men is their exemplery middos. The yeshiva has produced a huge number of kiruv workers, people in chinuch, and the RY also sent out some of his top guys to start branches (Miami, Rochester, PTI/Vancouver, Dallas, St. Louis, Las Vegas etc) by starting mesivtas in communities where there was a need for them. The focus has always been on giving back to the Khal.July 8, 2011 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #783854bezalelParticipant

What R’ Mendel started before the war was a charity to raise money for the yeshiva in Radin. After the war he reestablished the yeshiva but instead of becoming the Rosh Yeshiva (He was a Rosh Yeshiva at REITS at the time) he gave that position to his son R’ Gershon.July 8, 2011 8:19 pm at 8:19 pm #783855Derech HaMelechMember
