HaRav Chaim Kanievsky was born on January 8, 1928, in Pinsk, Second Polish Republic, to Rabbi Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky, known as the "Steipler Gaon", and Rebbitzen Miriam Karelitz (Pesha Miriam: Pesha was added ), sister of Rabbi Avraham Yeshayahu Karelitz, known as the "Chazon Ish". He married Batsheva Elyashiv, daughter of Rabbi Yosef Sholom Eliashiv

In his youth, he was known as a brilliant child prodigy who could remember Torah with a photographic memory and could elucidate complicated rabbinic teachings, despite his young age. During the 1947–1949 Palestine war, Rabbi Kanievsky, then a student at the Lomza Yeshiva, was mobilized into the Israel Defense Forces. He was assigned to stand guard on a large hill near Jaffa.


Since the passing of Rabbi Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman in December 2017, Rabbi Kanievsky, along with Ponevezh Yeshiva head Rabbi Gershon Edelstein, is widely considered to be one of the leaders of the Israeli Haredi community,
