Description
   R. Meir Leifer-Rosenbaum, Rebbe of Kretchnif-Nadworna (1848-1908), was the third son of R. Mordehai Leifer of Nadworna. He started his Chassidus in Jassy and after several years moved to Kretchnif (Crachunesti) a suburb of Sighet. Like his father, he lived an ascetic life and was renown for his extreme piety, humility, Talmudic and Chassidic scholarship, and insight into human nature. Many wonderful stories abound about him as a miracle worker and savior of Jews. His court in Kretchnif attracted thousands of Jews wishing to receive his advice and his blessing. He was known for his sincere behavior which allowed him to smile only on Purim and Simhat Torah.
