Biographical Notes:

The Rav was born (1913) in Kashau, Czechoslovakia, his father Rav Meir was the Zhidichover Rav of Kashau. As a child, he studied under Rav Shaul Brach, the Kashauer Rav. After his marriage, he replaced his father-in-law (who had moved away) as Kiviashder Rav and established a yeshiva, which ran for six years, until the Nazis arrived in 1944. It is believed that his FIL offered him the Rabbanis as a wedding gift.
In 1944, the Rav was deported to Auschwitz and later Bergen-Belsen, where his parents, wife, and three young children were murdered. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, the Rav married his wife’s younger sister, established a beis din that assisted hundreds of agunos, and arranged education of many orphans.
In 1950 he moved to the United States and settled in Forest Hills where he opened a Beth Medrash. In 1953, under the auspices of the Satmar Rav, he established the Central Rabbinical Council of the United States and Canada.
