After his marriage, he was invited to join the Mercaz haRav yeshiva, where he has remained ever since. Even in his youth, Rabbi Shapira succeeded in establishing connections with great rabbis such as the Chazon Ish, Rabbi Zvi Pesach Frank, Rabbi Yitzchak Zev Soloveitchik and Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer, with whom he corresponded for many years, later publishing the correspondences in a book, Even haEzel.In 1956, he was appointed as a member of the Jerusalem Beth din by the chief rabbi Yitzhak HaLevi Herzog.
