Meshulam Dovid Soloveitchik (known as Reb or Rav Dovid) (born 1921) (Hebrew: משולם דוד סולובייצ'יק) is an Orthodox rabbi and rosh yeshiva of one of the branches of the Brisk yeshivas in Jerusalem, Israel, attended by select young Talmudists, mainly from the United States. He is a son of Rabbi Yitzchak Zev Soloveitchik, a son-in-law of Rabbi Osher Sternbuch of London and a brother-in-law of Rabbi Moishe Sternbuch and Dayan Chanoch Ehrentreu.
Soloveitchik is the fifth of twelve children and the third son born to Rabbi Yitzchok Zev Soloveitchik and his wife, Alte Hindl, the daughter of Rabbi Chaim Auerbach of Jerusalem. Although the exact date of his birth is unknown, his older brother Chaim was born in January 1920 and his younger brother Refoel Yehoshua was born in spring 1924. He was named Meshulam after his maternal great grandfather, Meshulam Auerbach, who proposed the shidduch between his granddaughter and the son of Rabbi Chaim Soloveitchik.
His yeshiva is located in the Gush Shemonim section of Jerusalem.
He has yet to publish any works on the Talmud, but many of his works have been published by his students, especially in the latest Mishor prints of his father's works. He is considered by Briskers to be one of the last authentic remnants of a pre-World War II Jewish Lithuania, and is often quoted for his memories of his father's and grandfather's lives and teachings.
Soloveitchik's son, Velvel, who is the son in-law of Rav Berel Povarsky is a maggid shiur (lecturer) in his father's yeshiva. His daughter is married to Rabbi Nechemya Kaplan, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Shaar HaTalmud, Jerusalem.
