Rav Feinstein was born in Luban in 1929 and emigrated to the United States in 1936 with his illustrious father, Harav Moshe Feinstein zt”l.

Rav Dovid Feinstein was a towering Torah scholar, who published many volumes of substantive and inspiring Torah insights. Rav Feinstein maintained prominent communal positions, including serving as a member of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of Agudath Yisrael for many decades.

Moreover, his halachic [Jewish legal] guidance was sought by thousands of people throughout the world, and he maintained a significant leadership role in addressing issues of broader communal policy.

Despite his renowned position within the Jewish world, “Rav Dovid” was known for his unparalleled humility and kindness.

May his memory be an eternal blessing.
