Rav Yitzchak Meir Morgenstern is the Rosh Yeshiva of Toras Chochom in Israel. What is his background and biography? Meaning, where did he grow up, which yeshivot did he learn at and under whom (I know he was in Golders Green for some time)? I'm looking for as much biographic information as possible.

When I saw the title I thought you were referring to the Kotzker :) – Shmuel Brin Jan 9 '13 at 21:27
@ShmuelBrin apparently he is related – user2110 Jan 9 '13 at 21:54
Where do you live and why are you curious to know? – Yehoshua Jan 9 '13 at 22:32
@Yehoshua I live in the US and read his weekly emails so I'd like to know more about the person who comes up with such amazing torah. I always try to readthe biography of the people I learn from – user2110 Jan 10 '13 at 14:07

Per Wikipedia he is a Chasid of Ger from birth. He learned in the Yeshivas of Lucerne and Gateshead. He is married to the daughter of R' Yosef Lubinsky from Antwerp (known as the Chantshin Rabbi). He moved to Yerushalayim after his marriage and learned with R' Eliezer Shlomo Schick and R' Nissan Dovid Kivak. He is also close to R' Tzvi Hirsh Rosenbaum (Kretchnifer Rabbi-Siget).
