In loving memory of Barry Lionel Taylor 11th August 2012 ( benyamin labe ben pinchas 23 av 5772 )
Yosef Shalom Elyashiv (born April 10, 1910) is a Haredi rabbi and posek (arbiter of Jewish law) who lives in Jerusalem, Israel.
At the age of 102, Elyashiv is active and remains the paramount leader of both Israel and the Diaspora Lithuanian-Haredi community, and many Ashkenazi Jews regard him as the posek ha-dor, the contemporary leading authority on halakha, or Jewish law.
He spends most of his days engaged in Talmudical study, and delivers lectures in Talmud and Shulkhan Arukh at a local synagogue in the Meah Shearim area in Jerusalem where he lives. He receives supplicants from all over the world and answers complex Halakhic inquiries.
