19 Adar - Yahrzeits

R’ Yosef Chaim ben R’ Avrohom Shlomo Sonnenfeld ZY”A, Rov of Yerushalayim (1932). Talmid of Ksav Sofer

R’ Yehuda Greenwald ZY”A, Av Beis Din of Satmar, author of Shevet

R’ Yitzchok ben R’ Yosef Kalisch ZY”A, Amshinover Rebbe of US (1993)

R’ Meir Yechiel ben R’ Avrohom Yitzchok Halevi Haldshtok ZY”A, Ostrovtzer Rebbe (1928) Not so well known, but was an absolute genius besides being a great tzadik who fasted most of his life. There is a great tape about his life from Rabbi Berel Wein, available here. Wrote Meir Einei Chachomim (not to be confused with an earlier sefer on Chanukah & Purim by R’ Meir of Kursetchov)
