This is the incredible story of the renowned tzaddik Rav Yonason Steif zt"l, told through the eyes and memories of his one and only daughter. This captivating biography follows Rav Steif during his youth, earlier years, and later as Chief Rabbi in Budapest. It documents his miraculous escape during the War to Switzerland and his consequent relocation to America. He was a man who weathered the fiery storm of Churban Europe and then fanned the meager flames of renewal and revival on these shores.
Small in stature but a giant in Torah, Rav Yonason Steif became a familiar figure in Williamsburg (NY) and throughout the world. During the fifties, he was the Rav of the Vienne kehillah where he was beloved and revered until his last day. He was recognized everywhere for his profound wisdom and devoutness, his extreme piety, as well as being the epitome of humility. His name is well remembered for all these qualities, yet little has been published about this great luminary. The Life and Times of Rabbi Yonason Steif tells the powerful story of the life and achievements of this gadol and preserves them for generations.
