|Yeshivat Maharat ordainee, Rabbi Lila Kagedan (Jewish Chronicle Online)|
When the Traditional Movement began, Rav Chaim Dovid Regensburg encouraged Orthodox rabbis to take pulpits in their Shuls. Rav Regensburg was no ordinary Rabbi. He received Semicha (Yoreh Yoreh Yadin Yadin) from the Slabodka Rosh HaYeshiva, R. Moshe Mordechai Epstein; and from the Lomzer Gaon, R. Yehuda Leib Gordon at the age of 20. He eventually became a Rosh Yeshiva at the Hebrew Theological College (HTC). He was also the Av Beis Din of the Chicago Rabbinical Council (CRC) for many years.
