Moshe Soloveichik (1879, Valozhyn – 1941), was an Orthodox rabbi. He was the second son of renowned Rabbi Chaim Soloveitchik and grandson of the Beis HaLevi. He married Pesya Feinstein, daughter of the renowned Rabbi of Pruzany, Rabbi Eliyahu Feinstein, and first cousins with Rabbi Moshe Feinstein.
At the age of 31, he was appointed rabbi of the town of
Raseiniai, a position he held for three years. In 1913, he took the position of rabbi of Khislavichi. After World War I, he went to Poland in 1920, and from there he immigrated to New York in 1929, answering the call of Rabbi Dr. Bernard Revel to join the faculty as Rosh Yeshiva at the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary of Yeshiva University.
While Soloveichik was in New York City, his eldest son, Rabbi
Joseph B. Soloveitchik was working on his PhD in philosophy at the University of Berlin, which he completed in 1931. The following year, Rabbi Yosef Dov (often referred to by his students as "The Rav" or Rav Yoshe Ber) moved to Boston and became head of the Jewish community there.
When Soloveichik died in 1941 at the age of 62, his son Rabbi Yosef Dov was asked to fill his father’s place.
Soloveichik’s two younger sons were Rabbi
Ahron Soloveichik (1917–2001), who also taught at RIETS, and Dr. Samuel Soloveichik (1909–1967) who taught chemistry at Yeshiva College. He also had two daughters, Mrs. Shulamit Soloveitchik Meiselman (1912–2009) and Dr. Anne Soloveitchik Gerber (1913-2011).
