Shmuel on June 15, 2009 at 11:43 am I don’t know that they are related (maybe distantly), The Krula Rebbe of Williamsburg’s father or grandfather came from Krula. At one point the the Satmer Rebbe ZY”A was also the Krula Rav avremele on June 15, 2009 at 1:15 pm He was a different Krula. I believe he was rov there after the war. The Krula Rebbe’s (Spinka) grandfather was rov in Krula simultaneously with a different Rabbi Gross. Yitzchak on June 25, 2009 at 10:55 pm The Satmar Rov was not happy that Reb Hershele Spinka’s father was Krula Rov after he moved to Satmar, so the Satmar chassidim appointed HaRav Gross as Krula Rov Yitzchak on June 25, 2009 at 10:55 pm more info see http://www.krularebbe.com/ Yitzchak on June 25, 2009 at 10:56 pm after the war Satmar and Spinka made shalom – sometimes Reb Hershele Spinka zt”l zy”a was called Krula Rov as well eretzhagar on May 29, 2010 at 3:40 pm Regarding Krula (Nagykaroly, Carei), there were three Jewish communities in the town: Orthodox, Sefard and Status Quo ones. R’ Avraham Abish Horowitz (who was from the Ropshitz-Mielitz dynasty, and a son-in-law of the Spinka Admor R’ Yitzchok Eisik Weiss) served as av beth-din at the Orthodox community. R’ Shmuel Gross (son of the Berbesht Rav R’ Rafael Gross, and son-in-law of Kerestir Admor R’ Avrumele Steiner) was the av beth-din at the Sefard congregation.
