    In his first marriage he married the daughter of Reb Moshe Teitelbaum of Tech who was a grandchild of the Yetev Lev through his son Reb Eli Betzalel of Tech, thats why he was the Tech rav in Hungary pre-war, he lost his wife and kids during WWII and remarried.

    The Skulener Rebbe’s son of Montreal is his SIL.
