There was the attempt to establish the Knesses Yisrael organization, which was the first ever attempt at the organization of traditional Jewry in Russia. Then there was the Vilna conference of 1909, which was a preliminary meeting to the rabbinical commission in St. Petersburg which was to be called by the Czarist government the following year. Also in 1909 was the Bad Homburg conference, which laid the foundation for the founding of Agudas Yisroel. Finally there was the famous rabbinical conference in St. Petersburg in 1910.
In all of these gatherings, Rav Chaim Ozer’s organizational ability, leadership and practical approach led him to be one of the central figures at each subsequent meeting. This firmly established him as one of the primary leaders of Russian Jewry.
