Rav Nosson Tzvi's arrival in Mir Yeshiva Jerusalem as a young adolescent became a turning point in his life, and ultimately set the stage as a turning point in the history of the Mir as well. After going back and forth a couple of times, he eventually settled down, married into the family, and subsequently spent the next several years in a tireless effort towards greatness. In the winter of 1990, Rav Nosson Tzvi succeeded his father in law Rav Beinish Finkel as Rosh Yeshiva of the Mir. For the next 22 years until his passing, he oversaw a meteoric growth of the student body as well as building the buildings to hold them all. Through this entire career, he never lost the personal warmth and care that he had for any student of the Yeshiva - as well as many strangers from without. This ability to maintain a personal connection and relationship, made him the beloved figure to so many who knew him.
