Growing up in a rabbinic family, Rabbi Chaim Zvi Senter absorbed strong Torah values and a sense of achrayus to the klal. After learning in Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim for five years, Rabbi Senter started delivering shiurim to talmidim in the Mir.
Five years later, in the summer of 2006, with the guidance of his rebbe, Rav Dovid Cohen, shlita, Rosh Yeshivas Chevron, he opened his own yeshivah with just 20 boys. Today, the enrollment stands at 110 students, 90 married kollel students, and over 20 rebbeim.
Rabbi Senter was influenced by his grandfather, Rabbi Aaron Dov Rosenbaum, an activist and the driving force behind the Rosenbaum Yeshivah of North Jersey. He was also greatly influenced by the teachings of Rabbi Shlomo Freifeld and Rav Klonimus Kalman Shapiro, brilliant educators of years past. He lives in the Arzei Habira neighborhood of Jerusalem with his wife and children.
