Born in Rangoon, Dayan David shlita spent time learning in the Brisk Yeshivah Jerusalem, Gateshead Kollel before accepting a teaching position in Yeshivat Porat Yosef, Jerusalem. After a few years the Dayan was invited to start a Kollel in Buenos Aires, Argentina which produced a generation of Torah scholars and leaders now serving throughout South America. The Dayan then answered the call of his community in London and sought the agreement of Rav Shach z”l before taking the guardianship of the Od Yosef Hai Yeshivah.
The Dayan’s deep knowledge of Torah is the benefit to all those who come to seek it. And nurturing a stronger awareness and appreciation of Torah in the community has led to the expression “Let’s learn a Jewish word” to ring in our ears daily.
