Rabbi Arnold Jacob Wolf, RIP

I was sorry to hear earlier this week that the legendary Chicago rabbi Arnold Jacob Wolf had passed away at the age of 84. I studied with Rabbi Wolf for two weeks at camp in 1995 or so, and I was shocked to hear him emerge more than a decade later as a friend, neighbor and defender of Barack Obama. I had had no idea of his earlier fame as an anti-war and civil rights activist.
