Bondi, Jonas

Bondi, Jonas a Jewish theologian, was born in Dresden in 1804. He received a thorough religious and scientific education, fitting him for any rabbinical position. In his native city he was engaged in commercial pursuits, but ever continued his Talmudic researches, and kept up his acquaintance with general science. In 1856 he arrived in New York, and was elected rabbi-preacher of the congregation Anshe Chesed, worshipping in Norfolk Street. At the expiration of his term, he engaged in literary pursuits, contributing to the Occident of Philadelphia, of which he subsequently became associate editor. Shortly before his death, he assumed control of the Jewish Record,

and changed its name to the Hebrew Leader, which he edited to the day of his death, March 11, 1874. (B. P.)
