While working toward becoming a rabbi, Leib Tropper studied under various Jewish leaders and educators, including Maran HaGaon Harav Chaim P. Scheinberg. A scholar and teacher of the Talmud, Rabbi Leib Tropper continues to be influenced by Rav Scheinberg and the education he received from the Yeshiva Torah Ore.
The Yeshiva Torah Ore was founded by Rav Scheinberg in 1960 and is located in Jerusalem, Israel. The school promotes education in Halachic ideals among the Orthodox Jewish community and has become a Talmudic institution in the Kiryat Mattersdorf neighborhood.
During his tenure, Rav Scheinberg was committed to his students’ education as well as their well-being. During the 1967 Six-Day War, he stayed in refuge alongside his students in a bomb shelter. Rav Scheinberg remained with the school until his passing in March 2012.
Prior to forming the Yeshiva Torah Ore in 1960, Rav Scheinberg was the mashgiach ruchani of Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim in New York for 25 years, as well as the Rav of Congregation Bakash Shalom Anshei Ostrov.
