Rabbi Dovid Grossman is a world-famous Talmudic lecturer.

In his younger years, Grossman studied in The Talmudical Yeshiva of Philadelphia under the tutelage of Rabbi Elya Svei and Rabbi Shmuel Kamenetsky. While en route to Israel, he also learned one Elul zman in a branch of the Novardok yeshiva in France. In Israel, he joined the Yeshiva Mir in Jerusalem, where he became a student of its Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Chaim Shmuelevitz. In Jerusalem, Grossman developed a personal relationship with Rabbi Meir Soloveitchik, a son of Rabbi Yitzchak Zev Soloveitchik. It was in Israel where he met his wife, Rachel. Rachel Grossman was the principal of Valley Torah High School's girl division in Valley Village, California through June 2014, and has since retired.

After returning to America, Grossman learned in the Lakewood Kollel. After 7 years there, he went on to become one of the founding members of the Lakewood Kollel branch in Los Angeles (1975).[1] In 1981, he helped start Yeshiva Gedolah of Los Angeles where he served as the 12th grade Talmud lecturer until 2008. Concurrently with position as lecturer at YGLA, he opened a Torah program for working young adults and college students, independent of the Yeshiva.

Grossman is known for his Talmud lectures. Recordings of his lectures on every page of the Talmud (daf yomi) are available and widely used.[2]
