At a young age authored with his twin brotjer Rabbi Zvi Yehuda the Sefer 'Shevet Achim' on Kelalei HaShas. In 1860, he married the daughter of R. Aryeh Leib Chazan, one of the Talmidei Chachamim of Ponovezh. Several years later, after refusing to serve as Rav in his birthtown of Pikelin, he was appointed the Rav of Ponovezh. During the time he was Rav, he took care of the needy. During this time he also turned down the offer to serve as Rav of Warsaw.  After eighteen years, he moved to served as Rav of Mir. Later he was called by Rabbi Shmuel Salant to immigrate to the Holy Land and settle in Jerusalem to serve as his assistant and becoming Rav after his passing. In practice, Rabbi Shmuel Salant lived longer than the Aderet.
