Rav Dovid Leibowitz was a talmid of the Chafetz Chaim and the father of Rav Henoch Leibowitz. I have heard in the name of Rav Yitzchak Hutner that out of all the yeshivas in America, only Rav Leibowitz's yeshiva attempted to create a "mussar yeshiva" in the same style as the European mussar Yeshivas, I.e. A yeshiva that put an emphasis on personal growth and not only learning Torah per se.

My question is, do we possess any material written by Rav Leibowitz?

    See book tiferes dovid in general, and the appendix contains letters of divrey torah between him and Avraham Eliya Kaplan, maybe others too

  • His sudden death may have been a contributing factor to any dearth

  • That quote from Rav Hutner is hard to believe, as Rabbi Ruderman intended Ner Yisroel to be a continuation of the Slabodka tradition.
