Over the past three decades, HaRav Yochanan Zweig has inspired thousands with his brilliant and thought-provoking lectures and shiurim. His keen analytical approach challenges talmidim and adult learners, giving them a greater understanding and love for Torah.
While attending Ner Israel Rabbinical College from 1955-1969, Rav Zweig received rabbinical ordination – Yoreh Yoreh & Yadin Yadin – from HaRav Yaacov Yitzchak Ruderman, z”l and HaRav Yaacov Weinberg, z”l. From 1969-1974, Rav Zweig served as a Rosh HaYeshiva and Rosh Kollel in Yeshivas Beis HaTalmud in Jerusalem.
In 1974, Rav Zweig moved to Miami Beach, Florida and established the Talmudic University of Florida – now known as Yeshiva v’Kollel Beis Moshe Chaim. What started as a Beis Medrash with ten students has grown into a complete educational system from preschool through graduate school with over 800 students. In addition, the Yeshiva provides a large variety of adult education programming; serving as a nexus of Torah learning for all of South Florida.
Rav Zweig is a much sought after lecturer and speaker. In recent years, he has been a scholar-in-residence in over 50 national and international cities.
