Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin or Yeshivas Rabbeinu Chaim Berlin, (Hebrew: יְשִׁיבַת רַבֵּינוּ חַיִּים בֶּרלִין) is a Haredi Lithuanian-type yeshiva located in Brooklyn, New York. Established in 1904 as Yeshiva Tiferes Bachurim, it is the oldest yeshiva in Kings County. At the suggestion of Rabbi Meir Berlin (Bar-Ilan), it was renamed for his brother, Rabbi Chaim Berlin, the chief rabbi of Moscow who had moved to Jerusalem and was one of its leading rabbis at the time of his death.
It is an American, Lithuanian-style Haredi boys' and men's yeshiva. Current enrollment is close to two thousand students including preschool, elementary school, yeshiva ketana, a high school mesivta, a college-level bais medrash, and Kollel Gur Aryeh, its post-graduate kollel division.
From 1936 to 1980, the rosh yeshiva was Rabbi Yitzchok Hutner (1906–1980). Under Hutner's leadership, the yeshiva achieved international prominence in the orthodox Jewish community. In the late 1970s a branch was opened in Jerusalem called Yeshiva Pachad Yitzchok ("Fear of Isaac"). The name is both a Biblical reference to Genesis 31:42 and named for Hutner's books on Jewish thought.
The position of Mashgiach Ruchani has been held by (among others) Rabbi Avigdor Miller, Rabbi Shlomo Freifeld, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, and Rabbi Shimon Groner. The current Mashgiach Ruchani is Rabbi Mordechai Zelig Schechter, older son of the Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Aharon Schechter.
Notable senior faculty include Rabbis Pinchas Kahn, Chaim Kitevits, Yosef Fruchthandler, Shlomo Chai David Yitzchak Halioua, Avigdor Kitevits, Reuven Neirenberg, Eliyahu Yormark, Yitzchok Meir Sendrovitz, Chaim Lazer Kahn, Binyomin Fruchthandler, and Shmaryahu Yitzchok Efraim Kirzner.
Abraham Fruchthandler is the current president of the yeshiva; other members of the executive board include Mendel Schechter, Yisroel Meir Lasker, Tuvia Obermeister, and Efraim Feuer.
