Hagaon Harav Nesanel Hakohen Fried (1858-1916), Av Beis Din of Ivaresh and author of Pnei Meivin, Of the great sages in Hungary during the late 19th and early 20th century. The Darkei Teshuvah attested that already in his youth, Rabbi Nesanel Fried was renowned for his sharp mind and genius, and the Maharash Engel described him as “the gadol hador of his generation.”
Rabbi Shmuel Rosenberg of Unsdorf once expressed, “His praises fill the land from the greatness of his sharp mind and astounding scholarship.” The Pnei Meivin’s mastery of Torah is evident from the present letter in which he cites a stunning variety of sources in the Achronim, among them the Yismach Moshe al HaTorah. He authored many teshuvos and was rosh yeshivah in Ivaresh for over two decades. During World War I, he prayed and fasted so frequently that he eventually took ill and restored his pure soul to his Maker. His most famous printed works are Shu”t Pnei Meivin and Pnei Meivin al HaTorah.
