Meir Arak of Buczacz and R. Abraham Menahem Steinberg of Brody. He married Henia, the daughter of R. Issachar Dov Rokeah of Belz, a union that ended in divorce. He remarried to Tsyril, the daughter of Naftali Hayyim Horowitz. From 1923, he occupied a rabbinical position first in Erzecse-Batvaros, Kutzman, and then in Seret, where he established a yeshivah. ,p> Together with his father he visited the Holy Land in 1935. He became rebbe in 1936. He was active in the Aguda and advocated the establishment of agricultural centers for the training of religious pioneers. He was transported to Transnistra, where he spent two and a half years in hiding. His brother Eliezer rescued him and took him to Czernowitz and Braszov. In 1947 he arrived in Haifa, where he established the hasidic settlement Ramat Vishnitz. He was active in the Mo'etzet Gedolei HaTorah and Hinukh Atzmai. He was buried in Bene Berak.
