The author, R. Yekutiel Yehuda Greenwald, also known as Leopold Greenwald (1889-1955) was a rabbi and scholar. He was born in Hungary and studied in yeshivot both in Hungary and in Frankfort, Germany under Nehemiah Nobel. He immigrated to the United States in 1924 and he was the rabbi of Orthodox congregations in New York and Columbus, Ohio. R. Greenwald published many articles and monographs in Hungarian, Yiddish and Hebrew . He was especially interested in rabbinic authorities and Jewish communities of Hungary, on which he wrote Ha-Yehudim be-Ungarya (1913) and Toyznt Yor Idish Lebn in Ungarn (1945). His work Le-Toledot ha-Reformazyon ha-Datit be-Germanyah u-ve-Ungarya (1948) is a history of the Reform movement in Germany and Hungary (this work contains a bibliography of Greenwald's work up to 1948 and an evaluation by C. Bloch, 1–28, second pagination). He also wrote works on the history of the Sanhedrin and biographies of leading rabbis, such as R. Joseph Caro and R. Moses Sofer. In the latter category are Beit Yehonatan (1908) about R. Jonathan Eybeschuetz, and Toledot Mishpahat Rosenthal (1920) about the Rosenthal family, which included several rabbis. Greenwald compiled an important manual of traditional laws and rites of mourning, Kol-Bo Avelut (3 vols., 1947–52).
