R. Amram Greenwald (1831-70) was a disciple of R. Avraham Shmuel Benyamin Schreiber (the "Kesav Sofer.") R. Amram's celebrated son, R. Moshe Grunwald (1853-1911) followed his father’s example and also studied in Pressburg under the Kesav Sofer. He later served as Rabbi of Chust and is famed for his halachic work, Arugath HaBosem. R. Moshe's sons achieved fame in their own right, including R. Levi Yitzchak Greenwald of Tzehlem and R. Ya'akov Yechezkiyah Greenwald of Pupa. See HaBosem VehaShemen (2010) pp. 537-39; N. Z.
