Rabbi Moshe Feinstein [1895-1986] was one of the most prominent halachic adjudicators after the Holocaust. He was the president of Agudat Yisrael's Council of Torah Sages in the United States and rosh yeshiva of Metivta Tiferet Yerushalayim in New York. He was noted for his Shu"t Iggrot Moshe series.
