Who is Avrohom Elyashiv?
Rabbi Avrohom Elyashiv was the Av Beis Din of the city of Gomel and son-in-law of the famous kabbalist, Rabbi Shlomo Elyashiv, author of the Leshem Shevo V’Achlamah. He was also the father of Rabbi Yosef Shalom Eliashiv. He studied under the Chofetz Chaim in Radun' and later in Dvinsk.
In 1924, he immigrated to Jerusalem along with his illustrious father-in-law, his wife Chaya Musha, and young son Yosef Shalom. Following advice from the Chofetz Chaim, he changed his family name from Levinson to that of his father-in-law, so that the family would have a uniform immigration certificate.
