Per public information, Mr. Shraga Tzevi Levi  lives at 2 Torat Chesed Street, Jerusalem.
His land line phone number is +972 2 622-9783

This is a link to a summary of the book you mentioned: https://www.nli.org.il/he/books/NNL_ALEPH000934393/NLI
In essence, a tribunal headed by Rabbi Shraga Zvi Tenenbaum disqualified Rabbi Moshe Feldman from serving as rabbi in Galanta.
The book presents the reasons for the ruling and the correspondence between the rabbis of Hungary in this case.

Good luck with your search.

The Galanta affair very briefly: When the Rav of Galanta, R' Shimon Friedman passed away in 1891, his son-in-law R' Moshe Feldman was serving as Dayan. He was appointed to be Rav by supporters a few years later, but it was opposited by many community members, who have established another Jewish Community in 1895. (Their Rav was the famous R' Yosef Tzvi Duschinsky.)
R' Moshe Feldman left Galanta, settled in Budapest, where he was served as Rosh Beth Din of the Neolog Community, until his death in 1927(?).
