Biography[edit]

Teitelbaum was born in Stropkov, the son of Rabbi Yekusiel Yehuda Teitelbaum of Sighet, the Yeitev Lev and Ruchl Ashkenazi, the daughter of Rabbi Moshe Dovid Ashkenazi of Tolcsva. He served as rabbi at Técső before he went to Sighet after his father's death in 1883.[2]

He had two sons: Rabbi Chaim Tzvi Teitelbaum, the author of Atzei Chaim, and Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, author of Divrei Yoel and VaYoel Moshe, who was the rabbi of Satmar before he became the Rebbe of the Satmar Hasidic community.[2]
