Paragraph 1    The copy of R. David Judah Freund (d. 1985) rabbi of Sasragen. An erudite scholar, he was educated in Hungarian yeshivot. R. Freund married the daughter of R. Ezekiel Panet, Admor of Dez. He lost his wife and only daughter in Auschwitz and settled in Netanya after the Holocaust. He remarried to the sister of R. Abraham Isaac Kohn, admor of Toldot Avraham Yitzhok.
   Responsa on issues related to the Yore Deah by R. Moses Grunwald (1853–1910). He was born in Csorna, Hungary to his famous father R. Amram Grunwald. He studied under R. Abraham Samuel Sofer in Pressburg, but leaned to Hasidism and often visited R. Issachar Dov of Belz. He served as rabbi in Homonna, Slovakia and Kisvarda, Hungary and from 1893 in Huszt, Carpatho-Russia, where he established one of the major Hungarian yeshivas. R. Grunwald wrote three works all with the title Arugot ha-Bosem: (1) responsa (1912); (2) a study of the talmudic principle of Issur Hal al Issur (more than one prohibition can apply to the same act; 1928); and (3) a commentary on the Pentateuch (1913). He also wrote Mikveh Tohorah on the laws of mikveh (1931). His will was published (1911) under the title Hakhanah de-Rabbah.
