Rebbe Raphel Blum was born in the town of Kasho, Czechoslovakia and attended the Yeshiva of Rav Shaul Brach (d. 1940). Prior to World War II, the Rav established a Yeshiva in Mihalowitz, Hungary.
Surviving the Holocaust, the Rebbe was liberated in the town of Arad, Romania and in the summer of 1945 returned to Kasho where he was the driving force behind reestablishing the Jewish community. Together with other Rabbanim, the Rebbe participated in assisting more than 200 agunos (married woman whose husband’s whereabouts is unknown) allowing them to remarry.
In 1948, the Rebbe arrived in Brooklyn and began the work of transferring his Yeshiva. After an unsuccessful attempt in 1962 to establish a community in Morris County, N.J. the Rav purchased a property in Irvington, N.Y. (Westchester County) where he reestablished his Yeshiva.
In 1977, after a fire destroyed the Irvington property, the Rav acquired the Hillcrest Center for Children in Bedford Hills, NY and established Kahal Adas Kasho, a bustling torah community.

Rebbe Yosef Greenwald, author of Vayechi Yosef and Veyaan Yosef, achieved world recognition as a young man, prior to WW II, as the head of a large yeshiva in the city of Satmar. When his father, Rebbe Yaakov Yechezkiya Greenwald, (1882-1941) the author of Vayaged Yaakov, passed away, the Rebbe was?chosen to succeed him. Rebbe Yaakov Yechezkiya was a son of Rebbe Moshe Greenwald, (1853-1911), the Chuster Rav and author of Arugas Habosem. The Rebbe and his yeshiva relocated to the city of Pupa.
During the Holocaust, his wife and nine children were murdered and the Jewish community of Pupa was destroyed. After WW II, he remarried and began restoring the glory of Pupa.
In the post Holocaust years, the Rebbe provided lodging and meals for hundreds of young men and reestablished his yeshiva. As both father and mother, the Pupa Rebbe arranged sustenance and marriages for his orphaned students.
In 1950 the Rebbe settled in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn and began his congregation and yeshiva anew.
