Orphaned at an early age and raised by the Maggid of Dubno, R. Shlomo Kluger was a pre-eminent halachic decisor and a most prolific author of responsa who served as the Chief Dayan of Brody (Galicia). His rulings were sought by all, and he remains a Halachic phenomenon until today.
R. Chaim Nathan Dembitzer (1820-92) was a student of R. Shlomo Kluger. He later became Av Beth Din of Cracow. He is also renowned as an historian, especially due to his work Kelilath Yofi.
