His life story

He was born in 1767 to Rabbi Meshulam Faivish, in the town of Kostyukovych (Kastyukovichi) (AN) in Belarus.

After his marriage he traveled to Vilna and stayed there for four years in which he shut himself up in one of the beit Kenesset, in the city and immersed himself in the Torah.

Upon his return to Petrovich, he was appointed a teacher and rabbi of the city and served in that position for ten years.

In the year 1864 he immigrated to Eretz Israel and settled in Jerusalem and in the year 1866 he was asked by the great men of Jerusalem and headed by Rabbi Shmuel Salant to head the Yeshivat Etz Chaim and headed it until his death for about 25 years.

Following decrees and regulations that Rabbi Diskin wanted to amend and met with fierce opposition, a law was enacted in 1881 by the dignitaries of the Ashkenazi community who spread, that all regulations and agreements that Rabbi Diskin would amend without his approval Of Rabbi Kahanov and the approval of Rabbi Shmuel Salant - will not apply.
