    The “Pudhietze” Rebbe of Williamsburg was the son of Rabbi Alimeilech Frankel of Pudhietze, as listed on his Matzeive he was a descendant of the Primishlan, Ropshitz, Barditchev dynesties up to the Baal Shem Tov.

    He lost his family in WWII and never remaried, he suffered a lot here, he lived in Williamsburgh where he was accepted in the Satmar comunity.

    In Europe the Rebbe was known a respected Admor and talmid chocham. Sadly, during the war his entire family was murdered and he never recovered from his anguish. I believe that Rebbe Yoel Teitelbaum the late Satmar Rebbe had great respect for him.
