R. Schiff was a disciple of R. Jacob Joshua Falk, author of the Classic Commentary on the Talmud Pnei Yehoshua. He was a contemporary of R. Yechezkel Landau, Prague's Chief Rabbi and author of the fundamental Responsa Noda B'Yehudah. His most famous disciple was the holy Rabbi Nosson Adler of Frankfurt-am-Main, famous for his Kabbalistic teachings.
