Note: This page is NOT at all a comprehensive list of Rabbonim who wear and/or support Techeiles. There are many Rabbonim, Roshei Yeshivos, Rebbes, Dayanim and Talmidei Chachamim (some that you probably know or have heard of...) that wear and/or support Murex Techeiles. Some have specifically requested not to be publicized (yet).

Although Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach Zatzal (1910-1995) cannot be listed as a supporter of Murex Techeiles, this page would be incomplete without citing what he did say on the subject, and perhaps more importantly - what he did NOT say. (Some have quoted Rav Shlomo Zalman as being anti-Murex.) From the letter below two things are clear:

  1. He did not look into the subject in any significant way - "אין לי ידע חשוב בענין זה". (Similar to what Rav Elyashiv said.)
  2. He was definitely not against the concept that Techeiles could be found prior to the coming of Moshiach. (Otherwise he would not need to say that he has not researched the subject (to Dr. Ziderman) or that he is too elderly to start a new campaign (to Rav Burstein).

The first item below is the letter he wrote to Dr. R' Yisrael Ziderman, one of the first to research the method to produce Murex Techeiles. The second item is a transcript of the conversation between Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach and Rav Menachem Burstein:
