Rabbi Mordechai Neustadt is the founder of the Vaad L'Hatzolas Nidchei Yisroel. As a young man growing up in Eretz Yisroel, he showed early leadership ability, assuming an active role in Tz'irei Agudas Yisroel and other organizations that gave chizuk to orphans, survivors, and young Jews whose commitment to Torah was wavering. After the war, he served as a menahel in Ohr HaChaim, the first large chareidi Sephardic girls' school. In 1965, he moved with his wife to America and they started a travel business. Rabbi Neustadt was elected at a Knessia Gedolah to head the legendary Vaad Hatzalah that had saved Jews during the Holocaust, and soon thereafter he initiated the Shlichim Project, which was the forerunner of what ultimately became the multi-faceted organization he named the Vaad L'Hatzolas Nidchei Yisroel.
