Bishop Jonah was born in 1894 and emigrated to the United States after the fall of the imperial government of Russia in 1917.

In 1942, he was tonsured a monk at the Monastery of St. Tikhon of Zadonsk in South Canaan, Pennsylvania. In 1951, he was appointed Bishop of Washington by Metropolitan Leonty. After his consecration as bishop, he established his residence in Washington as the rector of the Washington parish of St. Nicholas. There he managed a national campaign to build a St. Nicholas National War Memorial Shrine, of which the basement was completed in May 1955, a few months before his repose.
