Kol Torah is a yeshiva in the Bayit Vegan area of Jerusalem, Israel founded in 1939. It is famous for its high standards in Talmudic teaching and quality of students, who are recognized as being some of the foremost Talmudic in the world.
Yeshivah Kol Torah was founded in 1939 by Rabbi Dr. Yechiel Michel Schlesinger, born in Hamburg, Germany and Rabbi Boruch Kunstadt, a Dayan (Rabbinic Judge) from Fulda, Germany. It was the first mainstream Haredi yeshiva to teach in Hebrew, as opposed to Yiddish, as was accepted at the time. This innovation had the crucial support of the Chazon Ish. After Rabbi Schlesinger's death in 1949, Kol Torah was headed by the famous Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach until his death in 1995.
