Jerusalem: 12th Shevat, 1938.

A disciple of R. Simcha Bunim Sofer (Shevet Sofer) in Pressburg, R. Yoseph Tzvi Duschinsky served in Galanta and later in Chust where he established a popular Yeshiva. Known as the Chuster Rov, in 1933 he succeeded R. Yoseph Chaim Sonnenfeld as the leader of the Eidah HaChareidith. The work of Rabbi Wilhelm was eventually published under the title Halachah Berurah (Jerusalem, 1965).
