(Letter to Editor in the Cleveland Jewish News)

The invocation that Rabbi Ari Wolf gave at the Republican National Convention July 18 was inspiring to all who seek peace on earth.

Back in the ‘80s and ‘90s, I was in charge of the Cleveland Police Stress Unit (employee assistance unit). Ari volunteered as a chaplain. He and his brother, Rabbi Sruly Wolf, were an important component of the unit.

He created a much-needed dynamic cultural advantage. Wow, a mostly Catholic, Protestant, Irish police force and rabbis. These two forces from God made it work.

They cared. I mean cared about everybody. I guess that’s what God wanted. Both of these rabbis have made life a little better, for Cleveland, police officers and officers’ families. Now, again, Rabbi Ari Wolf has taken his message of love to millions. Not bad, not bad at all.
