“Rabbi Schiff is a great storyteller. I recommend his book to anyone interested in a behind-the-scenes portrait of a religious leader, a devoted husband, and a perfect fan of the Miami Dolphins.” —Don Shula, Hall of Fame football coach

Background Information

 Rabbi Solomon Schiff was born amid the tenements of Brooklyn, grew up in the shadow of the Holocaust and, in 1954, stepped onto his first pulpit in Dubuque, Iowa— where a congregant remarked with a grin, “Rabbi, we didn’t know what sin was until you came to town.” From that day forward—and throughout the course of his distinguished 63-year career—Rabbi Solomon Schiff has continued to touch hearts, enrich minds and always provoke laughter.

In this long-awaited memoir, Sol Schiff recaptures his remarkable journey from local cantor in a Bronx Synagogue to world-renown rabbi, whose devotion to community service and interfaith relations has made him a beacon of inspiration for millions of all faiths. He has shared thoughts with five American presidents, three Israeli Prime Ministers, two Popes and the Dalai Lama, along the way collecting a treasure chest of memories—from delivering the invocation on the floor of the U.S. Senate to his life-changing relocation to Florida with his beloved wife Shirley, where he would develop a deep and charming obsession with the Miami Dolphins. 

Birth Place
Miami, FL USA

Rabbi Solomon Schiff holds a Doctorate in Pastoral Counseling from the Hebrew Theological College. Currently director emeritus of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation's Chaplaincy Service and the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami, he is the recipient of a Papal Medal from Pope Benedict XVI for outstanding service on behalf of interfaith relations; the Israel Redemption Award from the State of Israel; and the B’nai Avraham Award from the American Jewish Committee. Rabbi Schiff has appeared on 60 Minutes, Nightline and Viewpoint, and in Time, The Forward, and Promise.
