R. Yechiel Michel Tucazinsky (1871-1955), dean of the Etz Chaim yeshiva. He authored many halachic books and essays. One of his main enterprises was the Luach LeEretz Israel, a calendar based on the customs of the Perushim communities of disciples of the Gaon of Vilna, with the addition of halachic rulings from contemporary Jerusalem Torah leaders. These calendars are also prominent for the halachic times established by R. Yechiel Michel based on his halachic conclusions and thousands of days of observation and calculations.
