This chapter provides background on the life and religious activities of Rabbi Joseph Dov Soloveitchik, the spiritual mentor of so-called modern Jewish Orthodoxy in the United States. Soloveitchik's biography reflects the intellectual history of the twentieth century and its struggle with religion, which had to find a new standpoint in a secular world. Three cities influenced his religious exercise. These cities are Brisk in Lithuania where he was born in 1930; Berlin, Germany where he studied during the 1920s; and Boston, Massachusetts where he died in 1993. This chapter also discusses the similarity of religious practice with Ignatian spirituality.

Keywords:   Rabbi Joseph Dov Soloveitchik, rabbis, Jewish Orthodoxy, United States, Ignatian spirituality
