- Esther Jungreis was a young Holocaust survivor who became a friend, advisor, confidante, Torah teacher and often even a surrogate mother to thousands: singles and families, prime ministers, presidents and prisoners, and soldiers and spiritual seekers throughout the world.
- A pioneer in Jewish outreach and the founder of Hineni, she made history in Madison Square Garden, where she proved that Torah could interest, engage, and energize all Jews.
- Through her newspaper columns, television programs, bestselling books, and standing-room-only speeches, she ignited the “pintele Yid” that lies within every Jew.
- She shared her passion for Torah and Jewish continuity and enriched the lives of millions throughout the world.
She was "The Rebbetzin" -- Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis - and this is her unforgettable and inspiring story.
Born in Szeged, Hungary, Esther Jungreis descended from a great rabbinic dynasty that traced its lineage back to the days of King David. Having survived the Holocaust, she and her husband, Rabbi Meshulem Jungreis, were determined to devote their lives to combatting the spiritual holocaust of assimilation. Her life was infused with a giant spirit, and a fierce love for every Jew. She brought to Jews the world over a rare and wonderful combination: the warmth and caring of a Jewish mother (she made literally hundreds of shidduchim!), combined with the excitement and inspiration that only a truly gifted and dynamic teacher can share.
