Bio Information:
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.
