Rabbi David Moshe Rabinowicz (1906-1942) was the Rosh Yeshiva of Kibbutz Govoha and the entire Keser Torah network. The network had 36 schools, throughout Poland, with an enrollment exceeding 4,000 students.
Rabbi David Moshe was the son of Rabbi Nosson Nachum Hakohen Rabinowicz the Rebbe of Krimilov, and grandson of the second Radomsker Rebbe, Rabbi Avraham Yissachar Dov Hakohn Rabinowicz., he married Reizel the only daughter of his first cousin Rabbi Shlomo Chanoch Rabinowicz who was the fourth Radomsker Rebbe.
When Rabbi Shlomo Chanoch Rabinowicz established Kibbutz Govoha in the city of Sosnowiec exclusively for high-level students and avreichim (married students), he appointed his son-in-law, Rabbi David Moshe Hakohen Rabinowicz (1906–1942), a brilliant Torah scholar, to head it. Rabbi David Moshe also served as rosh yeshiva of the entire Keser Torah network, monitoring students' progress, delivering shiurim, and administering the end of the semester tests. By 1930, nine yeshivas and the kibbutz were functioning. Over the following decade, more yeshivas were added. On the eve of World War II, there were 36 Keser Torah yeshivas enrolling over 4,000 students in Poland. The yeshivas were disbanded after the German invasion of Poland in 1939, and most of their students were murdered in the Holocaust.
