Orthodox Rabbi Ignatz Lichtenstein (occasionally misnomered as Issac Lichtenstein) was a prolific writer, and a Rabbi. After having been a Rabbi for decades, he became a believer in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah. He retained his position as district Rabbi of Tápiószele even after his beliefs became publicly known.
