   Hasidic and kabbalistic commentary on the Pentateuch by R. Judah Gruenwald, (1845–1920), Hungarian rabbi. R. Gruenwald was born in Brezo, and served as rabbi of Szobotisz for seven years, of Bonyhad a further seven years, of Surany for two and a half years, and of Szatmar (Satu-Mare) for 22 years. In Szatmar he founded a large yeshivah which achieved a wide reputation. After his death several of his works were published. The most important of them are these responsa, Zikhron Yehudah. Others of his published works are: (1) Shevet mi-Yhudah (2 pts., 1922), on the Pentateuch; (2) Hasdei Avot (1925), on the tractate Avot; (3) Olelot Yehudah, a commentary on Psalms (1927); and (4) She'erit Yehudah (1938), on the Pentateuch.
