Rabbi Chaim Soloveitchik
(1853 - 1918) Chaim (Halevi) Soloveitchik is renowned as the founder and leader of the Brisker yeshiva and Talmudic study approach known as the Brisker. He came from Brest, Belarus, then in Imperial Russia, now in Belarus.
He is considered the founder of the "Brisker method" a method of highly exacting and analytical Talmudical study that focuses on precise definition/s and categorization/s of Jewish law as commanded in the Torah with particular emphasis on the legal writings of Maimonides.
His primary work was Chiddushei Rabbeinu Chaim, a volume of insights on Maimonides' Mishnah Torah which often would suggest novel understandings of the Talmud as well.
He married the daugheter of Rabbi Refael Shapiro and had two famous sons, Rabbi Yitzchak Zev Soloveitchik (also known as Rabbi Velvel Soloveitchik) who subsequently moved to Israel and Rabbi Moshe Soloveichik who moved to the United States and later served as a Rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva University in New York. He was in turn succeeded by his own son Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik (1903-1993).
