Rabbi Yosef Engel

 Head of the Bais Din in Cracow. A genius who was fluent in all avenues of Torah including Kabbalah and Chassidus

Born: Tarnov, Poland 1859
Died: , 1919
 

Rabbi of Krakow and Vienna . Born in Austrian Poland, his rebbe refused to teach him any longer when he reached the age of 12, and between that age and his marriage at 19, he wrote eleven sefarim (books). Among his sefarim were Gilyonei Hashas, Shiv'im Panim LaTorah Lekach Tov, Esvan D'Oraysa, and Beis HaOtzar, a Talmudic encyclopedia. His only child, Miriam, married the heir to the leadership of the Kotzker chassidim, but he abdicated that position in order to remain near his father-in-law, Rav Yosef. At age 46, Rav Yosef left his wealthy father-in-law's home and, for the first time, had to seek a living. He found a position as one of several rabbinical judges in Krakow. During World War I, Rav Yosef fled with hundreds of other Rabbis to Vienna, where he died.

May thre merit of the tzadik Rabbi Yosef Enge protect us all. Amen
