    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.

    Do you know if this person is related to my grandfather, Tuvia ben Aryeh Leib Frankel, from Stary Sambor? His entire family perished during the war.
