For three generations, Reb Elyah Lopian was a synonym for piety, wisdom, courage, mussar, and harbatzas haTorah.
A man who was an inspiring teacher and role model for countless thousands.
When he was in his eighties, after a long life of unremitting achievement, he longed to retire to a back bench in an obscure study hall.
The Chazon Ish quoted the verse, "They will flourish in their old age ... " so Reb Elyah laid aside his plans and began a new fifteen-year career as a guide and mentor in Israel.
This is the magnificent story of a towering Torah personality.
