    He wasn’t the Rabbi in Hungary, he named his Shul Ujhely after his father.

    Miller, to your knowledge he was the Rav Hatsoir to his fathers side before the war & Rav after WWII.

    As stated on the Matzeiva, he served as Rav first in Chicago (after WW2) and then in Miami.

    How do you differentiate between a Chief Rabbi, Grand Rabbi, and Rebbe??????

    In the early 1940s, he served as Dayan at Ujhely Sefard Community, where his father R’ David Dov Meisels was the Rav.

    He was appointed as the Young Rov when he got married,
    the first time before the war.

    After R’ Luzer ztzl married his father the Uheler Rov R’ Duvid Dov Meisels HYD named him Dayan. Later he became the Rav Hatzoir. In Hungary and Galitzia it was traditional to name the heir to the chasidishe rebbe or to the rov as Rav Hatzoir, basically making him crown prince. A Chief Rabbi is the Rov who answers halachic questions. Grand Rabbi and Rebbe are the same. This was the chasidic leader of a sect. They rarely answered halachic questions.

    He married a daugther of the stephbrother from Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum from Satmar. His father, the Kedushas Yom Tom, married twice and his second wife had a son from her first marriage, and his daughter married Rabbi Yechezkel the Rav of Radvan.
