Rabbi Mordechai Michael Jaffe (1803 – 1868) was born to a family of illustrious lineage and was an eighth generation descendant of the Maharal of Prague. He studied in Rabbi Akiva Eiger’s yeshiva for eight years, quickly becoming one of his prized disciples. In 1849, he was accepted into the historic
kloiz in Hamburg, where he studied and spread Torah for upwards of fifteen years.
