Description

This framed artwork of Rav Sonnefeld is rendered in laser cut stainless steel and acrylic combining the grace and elegance of modern design with the essence of Torah values.

Rav Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld, also spelled Zonnenfeld was born on 1 December 1848 and died on 26 February 1932.

He was the rabbi and co-founder of the Edah HaChareidis, a Haredi Jewish community in Jerusalem, during the years of the British Mandate of Palestine, while Rav Kook was appointed the first Ashkenazi Cheif Rabbi.

He was originally given the name “Chaim”; however, the name “Yosef” was added to him while he experienced an illness.

Sonnenfeld was born in Verbó, Hungary.

A talmid of the Ksav Sofer of Pressburg, Rav Yosef Chaim Zonnenfeld moved to Ottoman controlled Eretz Yisroel in 1873.
He became the right-hand man of Rabbi Yehoshua Leib Diskin and assisted him in numerous activities including founding of  the Diskin Orphanage, and the fight against secularism.
Although he initially worked closely with the future Chief Rabbi of Israel under the British mandate – Rav Avrohom Yitzchok Kook, they famously disagreed on many areas of Jewish life with Rav Zonnenfeld feeling that Rav Kook could best serve the general community outside of Jerusalem.
While vociferously disagreeing with their actions and intentions, Rav Sonnenfeld never-the-less felt that many of the fighters in the Jewish self defense groups were willing to put their lives on the line in order to protect other Yidden and for that he was grateful to them – he was known to invite members of the Hagana and similar groups to his Pesach Seder.
