HaRav Aharon Bina, son of HaRav Aryeh and Rebbetzin Rachel Bina, was born in Kfar Haroeh in 1948. Upon the completion of his elementary school education, he began learning in the Ponovezh Yeshiva in Bnei Brak, where he spent the next ten years.
HaRav Bina learned much of his educational philosophy from his revered father HaGaon HaRav Aryeh Bina zt”l, founder of Yeshivat Netiv Meir, Yeshivat HaKotel, and many other Hesder Yeshivot located all over Israel. He was a student of Rabbi Soloveitchik for a year, and received Smicha from Rabbi Ovadia Yosef zt”l. HaRav Shaul Yisraeli zt”l described HaRav Aryeh Bina zt”l as the generation’s greatest Torah educator.
Born to Yitzhak Nebenzahl, the State Comptroller of the State of Israel from 1948-1981, Israel's Ombudsman from 1961–1981, and a senior officer in the Bank of Israel and the Postal Bank.
Rav Nebenzahl was a faculty member of Yeshivat Mir before accepting positions at Yeshivat HaKotel and Yeshivat Netiv Aryeh, where he gives weekly lectures. He hosts many of those students in his home for kiddush after Shabbat morning prayer services. Nebenzahl's scholarly works include a commentary on the Mishnah Berurah, books about the laws of the Jewish holidays and tractate Shabbat.
Born in Israel to Rabbi Dov Katz and Esther, the daughter of Rabbi Zev Gold, one of the leaders of the Mizrachi and one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
For many years he was a Rosh Yeshiva in Yeshivat HaKotel, and also head of the Kollel at Yeshivat HaKotel, he authorized many students of the yeshiva to become rabbis. In 2002, when HaRav Aharon Bina founded Yeshivat Netiv Aryeh, he appointed Rabbi Katz to head the Yeshiva’s Kollel.
