Five-foot giant of Torah and Science: My father, Matest Agrest (1915-2005)
Agrest, M. 2007.  BH 17:182-185. CELD ID 21467

Although he was only five feet tall, I will always remember my father Matest Agrest as a giant. Known as the "Soviet Rabbi," he was a world-renowned scientist who lived proudly according to his principles, even at great risk. Compared to the brutality that the Jews suffered in Europe and the Soviet Union, my father was a lucky man. He lived a long and happy life, always feeling the hand of G-d.
