Rabbi Schussheim, son of Rabbi Moshe Schussheim zt’1, was born in Brooklyn, New York. Although he passed away at a young age, he was able to amass thousands of students over the 40 years he served as a rosh yeshiva at Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary. Rav Schussheim was among the first American born students to receive semikhah from RIETS, and ultimately become a rosh yeshiva at the Yeshiva. At 20 he was appointed as a ram in the Yeshiva University High School, and at age 42 was a rosh yeshiva in the Yeshiva itself. In his latter years he helped introduce and direct the RIETS Halakhah L’Maaseh program for students about to receive semikhah. He was a student of Rabbi Yosef Dov HaLevi Soloveitchik zt’I, whose shiurim he attended for 30 years. Even after he began giving shiurim himself he did not leave his great rebbe.

Rabbi Schussheim was humble, at once both simple and profound, and all of his aspirations were directed at attaining the truth. He desired neither honor nor greatness. He loved all and glorified the name of G-d in all of his ways and actions.
