Rabbi Avraham Gaon learned for many years under the guidance of great Rabbanim both in Eretz Yisrael and the United States. For eight years he learned in Kollel Mekor Haim and was a Talmid Muvhak of HaGaon HaRav Eliyahu Ben Haim Shlita and HaGaon HaRav Naftali Gan Zvi Shlita. He received his Yoreh Yoreh and Yadin Yadin from Rav Ben Haim and from the Rishon Le Tzion HaRav Mordechai Eliyahu zt”l. Rav Gaon served as the Menahel of Kollel Mekor Haim. He served as a member of the Sefardic Beit Din of Queens for many years. For over the past two decades, he has been the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Etzion for college age Bachurim  and Avreichim in Briarwood, NY.

Position

Having the opportunity to fulfill this mitzvah after nearly two-thousand years, the Rav holds that it is highly encouraged for all of Klal Yisrael to purchase both Tallit Katan and Tallit Gadol with Tekhelet. However, his position is that this refers davka to the Ptil Tekhelet murex and not the Radziner’s Tekhelet.
