Baruch Chait is an Orthodox Jewish rabbi, musician and composer. He is also the Rosh Yeshiva of the Israeli high school Maarava Machon Rubin. He is the son of Rabbi Moshe Chait, the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivath Chafetz Chaim of Jerusalem, and a student of Rabbi Henoch Leibowitz, former Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim of Kew Gardens Hills, New York.
Since the late 1960s, Chait has composed hundreds of Jewish religious songs that still have wide popularity and appeal. Included in this list is his original composition, "Kol Ha'Olam Kulo". He founded several bands including The Rabbis' Sons and Kol Salonika and has published dozens of records.
Rabbi Chait is the founder of a yeshiva high school in Israel called Maarava Machon Rubin. The school combines religious studies with secular studies at a level allowing graduates to complete their matriculation exams. The school officially caters to the Haredi sector of Israeli society, but due to its inclusion of secular studies it draws from the moderate elements of Haredi culture including many students from American backgrounds.
