R. Mordecai Shalom Joseph Friedmann(1897–1979), Admor of Sadgora. He was the last Admor of the Sadgora dynasty who, after serving as admor in Sadgora and Przemzyl, settled in Tel Aviv in 1939. He was the author of Keneset Mordekhai.

R. Samuel Judah Benjamin Bernfeld of Topolcany and Bratislava (Pressburg).

R. Dr. Leo (Elijah) Jung (1892–1987), U.S. Orthodox rabbi. Jung was born in Ungarisch-Brod (Uhersky-Brod), Moravia, son of Meir Jung who became rabbi of the London Federation of Synagogues in 1912. He pursued rabbinical studies at Hungarian yeshivot and received his rabbinical ordination from the Rabbinical Seminary of Berlin (1920). In 1920 he went as rabbi to Congregation Kenesseth Israel, Cleveland, and in 1922 became rabbi of the Jewish Center, New York. Jung emerged as one of the best-known spokesmen of neo-Orthodoxy in America. He became professor of ethics at Yeshiva University in 1931 and held a similar position at Stern College for Women from 1956. Active in efforts to regularize kashrut supervision in New York, Jung was appointed chairman of the New York State Advisory Board for Kashrut Law Enforcement in 1935. He was associated with the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee as chairman of its cultural committee (from 1940) and was a trustee of the National Jewish Welfare Board from 1928. Jung was at one time identified with the Agudath Israel organization, and was a member of its supreme council until 1929. He withdrew on account of its refusal to cooperate in the Jewish Agency for Palestine, of whose first council he became a member. A noted writer and editor, Jung started the Jewish Library in 1928, and edited eight volumes. His Harvest; Sermons, Addreses, Studies appeared in 1956. Jung's 70th birthday was commemorated by the Leo Jung Jubilee Volume (ed. by M. M. Kasher, 1962).
