BONDI, Jonas, Jewish rabbi, born in Dresden, Saxony, 15 July 1804; died in New York, 11 March 1874. He received a thorough secular and theological education at Prague, but did not enter upon the active duties of the ministry until his call to New York in 1859 as rabbi of a synagogue. At the expiration of his term he engaged in literary pursuits, contributing to the " Occident," of Philadelphia, and establishing in New York the "Hebrew Leader," which he edited until his death. Dr. Bondi was earnest and eloquent, as a speaker and writer in the German language, regarded as an authority on Talmudical and rabbinical questions, and belonged to the conservative school of Jewish thought. He was prominently connected with Jewish charitable organizations.
