Rabbi Wolff

Rabbi Wolff

Deutschland 2015/2016, Dokumentarfilm

Inhalt

A documentary about William Wolff, a rabbi with an exceptional life story. At the age of six, he fled from Nazi Germany with his parents to Amsterdam before relocating to London in 1939. There Wolff started his career as a journalist for the Daily Mirror. A major shift in his life occurred in 1979, when he quit his newspaper job and became religious scholar. In this capacity, he eventually returned to Germany to become the chief rabbi of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania in 2002. He championed interreligious dialogue, all the while adhering to his personal credo that life is supposed to be fun. In 2014, the then 88-year-old Wolff retired, yet the very spry man didn't slow down a bit.
