R. Jekuthiel Judah b. Eleazer Nisan Teitelbaum of Sighet (18081883), became one of the greatest admorim in Hungary. Born in Drogobych, he studied with his grandfather, R. Moses, and served first as rabbi at Stropkov. After his grandfather's death in 1841 he was rabbi in Ujhely, but was forced to leave under pressure by the Mitnaggedim. He then officiated in Gorlice and Drogobych. However, he became known chiefly as rabbi at Sighet, where he moved in 1858; he subsequently gathered around him many Hasidim, and also founded a yeshivah. R. Jekuthiel Judah wrote many works, among them Yitav Panim, on the festivals (in two parts, 188183); responsa Avnei Zedek (in two parts, 188586); and Rav Tov on the Torah (1889).
