Leopold Greenwald (1888–1955), also known as "Yekuthiel Yehuda" Greenwald, was a prominent United States Orthodox rabbi. Born in Transylvania, Greenwald emigrated with his family to the United States in 1924.[1] For nearly thirty years he occupied the pulpit at Beth Jacob Congregation of Columbus, Ohio. The author of some forty works, most notably Kol Bo Al Aveilut, a halachic compendium and digest on the relevant laws of death and mourning, his scholarly contributions to Jewish law are widely utilized and referenced to this day.
