Johnah Theomim was born in Prague and acted as rabbi in Grodno and Pinsk (Lithuania). In 1648, because of the Chmielnick pogrom, he fled to Vienna, Nikolsburg (Austria), and finally Metz (Lorraine).

Metz Memorbuch #280 (folio 33a), English Translation: The great scholar, the pious, the illustrious... the man of God, the president of the rabbinical court, Chief Rabbi Jonas Teomim of Prague, who exercised the rabbinate for more than fifty years in the great communities of Nemirov, Lubamla, Belz, Horodno, Pinsk and elsewhere. He trained many of his students, who are now famous scholars. His dialectic dominated his time. When God shook the Jews of the kingdom of Poland by uninterrupted misfortunes, and they were subjected to exile and vicissitudes, the dove flew to Vienna, where the most illustrious Rabbi Cheftel Levi reigned... son of Rabbi Isaie, as well as the illustrious and subtle Rabbi Hechel... From there he came to Metz where he found a refuge... he was invited to Posen and did not want to go there, because here he could teach in peace. He left a rich legacy, his book entitled "The Terebinth of Jonah" where subtleties abound..." Died and buried on the first day of Passover 5429 [16 April 1669]
