Rabbi Gedaliah Anemer, who helped found a major Orthodox community in suburban Washington, has died.

Anemer died of a stroke on April 22. He was 78.

He founded the Yeshiva of Greater Washington in 1964, helping to lay the groundwork for the Kemp Hill community in Silver Spring, Md.

Anemer, an Akron, Ohio native, also was respected nationally as a halachic authority and headed the Rabbinical Council of Greater Washington, which functions as the area’s bet din, or rabbinical court.
