Rabbi Avi Weiss is a gadol bador, a great being of our generation. He was a champion in the struggle to free Soviet Jewry, he is a visionary in the evolution of inclusive Modern Orthodoxy and a chalutz–pioneer–in the empowerment of women within the Orthodox community. Rabbi Avi Weiss and his supporters created Yeshivat Chovevei Torah Rabbinical School in 1999 for the training of Modern Orthodox rabbis.
