    He was also Rav in Melborne Australia before he went to Montreal, In Montreal although he was always called as the kleiner Pupa Ruv he was actually the Rav of the Belzer Chasidim in Canada. He was an extremely clever person and loved by everyone who came in contact with him.

    “kleiner” was a nickname used only by few, due to his being about 3-4 ft high.
    He is buried next to the ohel of his Rebbe, the V’Ychi Yosef of Pupa

    The father of him, Rabbi Yosef ben Benzion Neuman was a Talmid of R’ Yeshaya Silberstein in Vac/Weitzen, and the Shevet Sofer in Pressburg. Rabbi Yosef served as Rav in Transylvania (Sepsiszentgyorgy, Deva, Brasso), and then in Obuda district of Budapest. He passed in 1964 in Papa, Hungary.
    Rabbi Yakov Yitzchok really served as Rav in Papa, abt. 1948.
    His father-in-law R’ Yakov Yechezkia Grunwald of Huszt, was son of R’ Amram Grunwald of Csorna, grandson of the Szerednye Rav R’ Yakov Yechezkia, and the (probably) youngest brother of the Arugas Habosem of Huszt, the Keren LeDovid of Satmar, and R’ Nachum of Csorna.

    His mother was a daugter of R’ Avraham Bick Z”L from Presburg Bratislova who was great in Torah and made many Seforim. Whoever knows more about the Bick Family kindly notify us here

    His mother was a niece of Rav Yitzchok Yaakov Reines.
    Rav Neuman was named Yitzchok Yaakov at birth but reversed his name because he did not want to be named after his uncle.
