Rabbi Baruch Chait is a Jewish religious composer, author, and Rosh Yeshiva. He is the son of the late R. Moshe Chait, the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivath Chafetz Chaim of Jerusalem, and a student of the late R. Henoch Leibowitz, former Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim of Kew Gardens Hills, NY.
Rabbi Chait is considered one of the important Jewish religious songwriters of the second half of the 20th century. Since the late 1960s, he composed hundreds of songs that still have wide popularity and appeal. Included in this list is his original composition, "Kol haOlam Kulo." He founded several bands - Rabbis' Sons, Kol Salonika and published dozens of records.
Rabbi Chait also founded a yeshiva high-school in Israel called Maarava Machon Rubin. The Yeshiva combines religious studies with secular studies at a level allowing graduates to complete their matriculation exams. The yeshiva officially caters to the Haredi sector of Israeli society, but due to its inclusion of secular studies it draws from the moderate elements of Haredi culture including many students from American backgrounds.
He has also written a number of children's educational book on Jewish topics.
