Rabbi Shmuel Zvi Weiss of Drogmiresht was the son of Rabbi Haim Gedalya, grandson of Rabbi Shmuel Zvi Pixler of the Imrei Yosef of Spinka’s family and the Beit Yitzhak of Swolie. He was the father-in-law of Rabbi Michaleh of Zlatchow-Netanya.
Rabbi Moshe Aryeh Freund was born in 1904 to Rabbi Yisrael, Av Beit Din of Honiad. As an avrech before the Shoah he served as rabbi in the town of Nosiod, Rogna, and then Satmar, where he served as dayan and Rosh Yeshiva under Rabbi Yoel of Satmar. After the war he became famous for freeing agunot and many came to him to receive permission to remarry. Years after the war he moved to Israel and settled in Jerusalem, and Satmar chassidim gathered around him and accepted him as their head. The Satmar Rebbe made him the leader of the Satmar yeshiva. In 1987 he became Ga’avad of the Eida Charedit, which he led until he died in 1996.
